Chemistry graduate and undergraduate students are extensively engaged in research with faculty members at the university and adjunct professors and other researchers outside of Carleton. Research is underway in many exciting areas in chemistry, notably cutting-edge work in analytical chemistry, nanotechnology, polymer science, environmental chemistry and toxicology, to name a few.

Graduate students benefit from our membership in the Ottawa Carleton Chemistry Institute (OCCI) which is a joint graduate program with the University of Ottawa.

Undergraduate research is an important component of our programs. Our students work closely with faculty members and their laboratory groups on research projects. There are many ways for undergraduate students to get involved, including paid positions, volunteer work, summer research positions, and credit in our fourth year honours research project course.

We invite you to look at faculty research interests and find ways in which you can become a member of a cutting edge research team.
