Carnegie Mellon University Department of Chemistry

About the Department

The Department of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University conducts exciting research programs that often use interdisciplinary approaches to bring insight to important problems, particularly at the interface areas related to nanotechnology and biotechnology. Faculty regularly translate their research into innovative courses and welcome undergraduates into their laboratories.

The highly collaborative culture of the department creates strong relationships that give students access to multiple mentors and a wide range of instruments and resources for outstanding scientific training. Carnegie Mellon's bachelor and doctoral chemists are well prepared for interdisciplinary approaches to research as well as to work on applications to important problems in government and industry.
