With laboratory facilities primarily located in our excellent Science Laboratory Center , the Chemistry Department is extremely well-equipped with modern instrumentation. All of our instruments are available for hands-on use by students both as part of the laboratory section of their chemistry courses and in their individual problems research projects. Because of the WSU Digital Life & Learning Program, we also have excellent computing facilities, both within the department and campus wide.
