Jeff Smith – Department of Chemistry

2nd Year:

Lab work in which students are involved in hands on engagements.

3rd Year:

Students complete a River Water Project, where all labs are mirrored with the analysis of water from the Rideau River to provide a real world experience with the techniques they are learning.

4th Year:

We bring in a guest speaker from industry and students complete two different field trips to different labs in town.

Grad Level Course:

Students complete a 2-week (condensed) intensive course where students walk through an entire analysis of a sample often from their own lab. Historically, one student actually publishes their results from this class in a peer-reviewed journal.
