BUILDINGS

Our wet labs have eyewash and shower stations along with fume hoods, which re-circulate and trap hazards in filters rather than venting to the atmosphere. We also practice a strict hazardous wastes disposal protocol, which means we collect and destroy or recycle all wastes, rather than sending these to a waste water treatment plant with other sewerage.

Chemistry/Physics:

 

The Department of Chemistry and Physics is located in the Glaske Center for Engineering, Science, and Technology. This 53,000-square-foot facility was completed in the summer of 2001 and opened in the fall semester of '01.

The building is state of the art featuring digital projectors and networked computers in every classroom and ductless fume hoods in every laboratory. In addition to instructional labs in physics and chemistry, the building also contains a laboratory for undergraduate research and a student resource room.

Computer interfaced instruments:

  • Gas chromatograph (GC)
  • Gas chromatograph - mass spectrometer (GC-MS)
  • Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FT-IR)
  • Ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer (UV-Vis)
  • Fiber optic fluorescence CCD spectrophotometer
  • Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance spectrophotometer (FT-NMR)
  • Gamry electrochemical potentiometer
  • NexStar 11 GPS Telescope

Other laboratory equipment and resources:

  • Laser optic setup.
  • Tube furnace.
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM) available through the Materials Joining  engineering department.
  • Computers with chemical modeling program such as Gaussian and Spartan, are also available
  • Linux computer server with sixteen processors running high level chemical modeling programs such as GAMESS and LAMMPS.

Sometimes it's not enough to learn about history in the classroom. We strive to make history come alive by offering opportunities for regular study trips that allow you to see and experience important historical sites for yourself while giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a foreign culture firsthand.

  

From software engineering to hardware design, our degrees emphasize the practical application of technology based on a solid foundation in the computer sciences.

Our facilities are designed to bring you the most up-to-date, applicable information and instruction possible to ensure that you not only have the know how in your field, but can also put that knowledge into practice.
