About

Chemistry of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater provides a sound background in the basic fundamentals and techniques of chemistry in order to ensure success in the professional career of the graduate whether it be as a chemist, a member of any of the health sciences, or a member of the other physical or natural sciences.

Overview

Chemistry of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater starts with the study of elementary particles, atoms, molecules, substances, metals, crystals and other aggregates of matter. This matter can be studied in solid, liquid, or gas states, in isolation or in combination. The interactions, reactions and transformations that are studied in chemistry are usually the result of interactions between atoms, leading to rearrangements of the chemical bonds which hold atoms together. Such behaviors are studied in a chemistry laboratory.

Careers

Because chemistry is primarily a practical experimental science requiring well developed laboratory and problem-solving skills, many graduates find employment in the multi-faceted chemical industry conducting applied research. For example, an industrial chemist might be working in the field of:

  • Food chemistry: developing and improving food products.
  • Pharmaceutical chemistry: researching new drug products.
  • Water chemistry: monitoring water quality or waste water treatment.
  • Agricultural chemistry: developing safer, more effective pesticides and fertilizers
  • Petroleum chemistry: researching new fuel and lubricant formulations
  • Biochemistry: involving the areas of biotechnology or toxicology testing

Many industrial chemists are working in the field of basic research, using the tools of theoretical chemistry. Large numbers of chemists are also employed in academic and government labs conducting both applied and basic research. Chemistry is a strong training component for those planning careers in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, pharmacology, or medical technology.
