Chemistry 125 – Chemical Principles

This course is designed to cover the important aspects of general chemistry in one semester, and is appropriate for students who have previously studied chemistry. The material covered includes chemical reactions, stoichiometry, atomic and molecular structure, and general chemical physics, emphasizing the fundamental aspects of and connections between equilibria, electrochemistry, thermodynamics, and kinetics.

Chemistry 292 – Computational Techniques in Chemistry

This course provides students with a practical introduction to the foundational techniques essential in computational chemistry research, including the Linux operating system and the use of Linux from the command line, high performance computing and batch job submission, bash shell scripting, and quantum chemistry software packages. The course format also serves as an introduction to an independent research experience, in which students are guided by the instructor but primarily are independently working through tutorial material.

Chemistry 352 – Physical Chemistry: Molecular Structure

Topics covered in this course include introductory wave mechanics and bonding theories, electrical and magnetic properties of molecules, basic computational chemistry, and spectroscopy.
