Advantages of our Ph. D. Programs

The NDSU Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is a medium-sized department with internationally recognized research and a small student-to-faculty ratio. Thus each student can get enough one-to-one attention from faculty, while participating in cutting-edge research working under the supervision of well recognized scientists.

We encourage collaborations between groups and departments, which often lead to cross-disciplinary learning opportunities and career development.

The department operates a wide variety of sophisticated research instrumentation and facilities, available 24 hours a day for use by students and faculty.
