Chemistry at Western Science gives students hands-on access to instrumentation (e.g., UV/VIS, FTIR, AA, IC, GC, and NMR spectrometers), develops their skills in report writing, and by their third year ensures they spend 12 hours per week in the lab.
Our interns work primarily in the food science, manufacturing and production, and chemical industries.
