True Learning Comes Through the Application of Knowledge

At SUNY Plattsburgh, we believe that to become a chemist you need to explore chemistry through research. Every student is expected to carry out an undergraduate research project prior to graduation, and the faculty are there to help you pursue research which will make you stand out among your peers.

Whatever your field of interest, the chemistry faculty at SUNY Plattsburgh will help you find a project that meets your interests. With your faculty mentor you will discuss experimental design, learn proper lab procedures, set up and carry out your experimentation.

Once you have your results, it is equally important that you know how to present them through public presentations and written reports. CHE391 (Oral and Written Reports) prepares you to to exactly that. You will learn with your friends both how to present your results, and how to discuss and analyze the results that others present.
