The chemistry laboratories at Lawrence Tech are housed third floors near the offices of chemistry faculty members. The university supports five major teaching laboratories:
In addition, an Advanced Instrumentation Room (Science 325) has recently been established to house the departmental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer and Scanning Electron Microscope.
The award winning Lawrence Tech student chapter of the American Chemical Society occupies Science 327. This room serves as a study room and lounge for our majors. All majors are welcome to use it.
All undergraduates at Lawrence Tech are provided with their own laptops, packed with the specialized software they will need in their education. Introductory chemistry laboratories are fully computerized, as are many of those in more advanced courses. Many of the instruments listed below include dedicated computers that drive them and analyze the output. Others interface directly with student laptops.
The department is fully equipped with all the instrumentation needed for thorough training in Chemistry. A partial list of major equipment includes:
The department policy is to introduce advanced instrumentation at the earliest opportunity in a student’s education.
