Enriching the Foundation in Chemistry or Chemical Biology Beyond a Bachelor’s Degree

A master's degree is becoming increasingly valuable. A master’s degree in chemistry enables students to round out their educations before embarking on their professional career. Accelerated master's degree programs save the cost and study time of graduate admission tests, application fees, and extra courses.


The B.S. degree in Chemistry provides students with a broad foundation in Chemistry that prepares them to solve real world problems and for a professional career in Chemistry or a related field.

Graduate Programs

The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology offers a modern set of graduate programs and courses that reflect the growing impact of chemistry in 21st century science and engineering. In addition to offering a variety of dynamic and evolving research programs, our faculty are well grounded in traditional areas of chemistry, while embracing new interdisciplinary programs that transcend traditional boundaries.

Undergraduate Programs

RPI's department of chemistry and chemical biology is at the forefront of research while being small enough for students to receive individual attention from faculty. Innovative teaching methods and small laboratory sections with research grade instruments allow us to offer an excellent formal instructional program, while our enthusiastic support of undergraduate research allows you to participate in exciting discoveries at all stages of your undergraduate career.


Chemistry for a rapidly changing world.

Chemistry, the interactions of atoms and molecules with each other and with their surroundings, is fundamental to understanding the materials and processes that make up our environment, our technology and ourselves.


Chemistry and Chemical Biology researchers are driving emerging fields of science and technology that lie at the intersection between chemistry and biotechnology, energy sciences, physics, biochemistry, computational methods, and materials science and nanotechnology.
