Mission

The mission of the department of chemistry, physics, and engineering studies is to provide classroom education and laboratory training in the fields of chemistry and physics so that our graduates may be competitive in a broad range of professional careers, including the health sciences, education, business engineering, as well as industrial, academic, and governmental research. By providing high quality coursework, diverse program options, and research and outreach opportunities  for both science and engineering majors and the more general CSU student population we aid students in developing content knowledge, an understanding of the nature of science, and expert-like attitudes about science and engineering. Through the activities and coursework our department offers, students are exposed to the process of doing science and developing a broad knowledge of the fields of chemistry, physics, and engineering and the applications of these disciplines to everyday life.
