Chem 296 Lab Rotation

Master’s level students are expected to go through a lab rotation their first fall semester. The objective of this course is to help students in identifying their future research advisor by exposing them to different research areas. Master’s level students are expected to complete 3 rotations their first semester (3 weeks per rotation). A student upon the approval of the advisor may choose to spend 3 rotations in one (1) lab; this advisor will be the chosen research advisor. Students will choose, at the end of their first semester, the possible advisor(s) that they would like to work with. A faculty committee will then meet and place students according to mutual advisor/ student agreement. The nature of the rotation may vary from one (1) lab to another depending on the advisor; thus some rotations can be research focused and others can involve more literature and background work
