New classes for Fall 2019!
This Fall, we will be offering several new courses including: CHE 250 (Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry), CHE 501/701 (Polymer Chemistry) and the accompanying lab (CHE 501L/701L) as well as FMT 140 (Introduction to Fermentation). FMT 140 will fulfill the science general education requirement for element 4. Please read the course desciptions below for more information:
CHE 250 (2 credits) - This class will cover the basic principles of inorganic chemistry including the discovery of the elements, their properties, and the significance of the Periodic table; atomic structure, bonding models, acid-base chemistry, oxidation-reduction chemistry, and coordination chemistry. Prerequisite: A "C" or better in both CHE 112 and CHE 112L .
CHE 501/501L/701/701L (2 credits) - Because of their unique and varied properties, polymers warrant their own course. Join us as we explore polymer structure and function. This course prioritizes hands-on lab experiences, allowing you to i) synthesize, characterize, and explore the properties of polymers, ii) make polymer-based devices (light emitting diodes and solar cells), and iii) test polymers for environmental remediation (oil spill clean-up, CO2 capture and sequestration). Pre requisities: A "C" or better in CHE 361.
FMT 140 (4 credits) - This course will provide an introduction to chemical and biological concepts as it relates to the production of desirable beverages and other products through the biochemical pathways of microorganisms typically used (for fermentation process). Prerequisites: developmental courses.
