Overview

Courses are taught in the O’Pake Science Center, a $9.3 million state-of-the-art teaching and research facility, which opened in 2006. The O’Pake Science Center added 31,582 square feet of classroom, laboratory, and faculty office space to Alvernia’s campus. Two floors of laboratory/classroom space, all of which have the latest in educational technology, allow students to employ a variety of laboratory materials and equipment for use in performing chemical synthesis, exploring physical and chemical properties of chemical compounds, examining chemical structure and reactivity.

The application of modern analytical tools to chemical, biochemical and forensic investigations is facilitated by instrumentation including UV/Vis, Infrared and Fluorescence spectrometers, HPLC, GC, GC/MS, a Raman spectrometer, flame/graphite-furnace atomic absorption spectrometer, as well as capabilities for using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS).
