Analytical Chemistry - the determination of the amount of a compound present, what form it is in, and the structure of the complex. Job opportunities within this discipline are available with a number of large corporations interested in quality control and understanding environmental hazards.
Biochemistry - the molecules and chemistry of living organisms, from DNA to proteins to lipids to carbohydrates. This an area of recent growth within the chemical industry as many companies have shifted emphasis to bio-engineering techniques for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and common chemicals.
Inorganic Chemistry - the study of the chemistry and reactivity of molecules built from all of the elements. The job opportunities in this area of chemistry are related to all areas of the manufacturing sector but in particular is the field of metal ion catalysis.
Organic Chemistry - the study of the synthesis and reactivity of compounds involving carbon atoms as a primary constituent. The synthesis of compounds from polymers, such as Nylon, to pharmaceuticals provides job opportunities for organic chemists.
Physical Chemistry - the measurement and calculation of the physical changes that chemical compounds undergo. Job opportunities range from the modelling of atmospheric release of chemical compounds to the synthesis of superconducting materials to the design and construction of new laser systems and fibre optics. In addition to the above areas, the Chemistry Program offers course in Environmental Chemistry and Advanced Research Techniques. Chemistry will also be offering courses in a number of joint degree programs with Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science and within the Biological Technician Program.
