Become an expert in your field, and find molecular solutions to big-picture questions. Chemistry graduate students collaborate with world-class researchers, work in highly sophisticated labs, and build the skills needed to pursue stimulating work in both research and industry. Among many other things, our faculty members and graduate students are working to advance knowledge in the areas of cleaner energy, medicine, and harnessing the possibilities of nanochemistry. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a campus with graduate students more engaged than those at the University of Calgary. As you work on your own research, your imagination will be fed by the department’s extensive research presentations and talks featuring world-class experts.
