Degrees & Programs


NJIT's program emphasizes the practical, industry-focused areas of chemistry. You can channel your interests in a particular branch of chemistry through technical electives. Most students work with a faculty mentor on research in areas including analytical and environmental chemistry, synthesis of organic and inorganic materials in green solvents, computer-aided drug design, laser diagnostics of elementary processes, kinetics, thermo-chemistry and thermodynamics.

Tap into knowledge and resources at NJIT and Rutgers-Newark. With options in sustainable earth, biocomplexity, environmental policy studies and chemistry of the environment, this interdisciplinary program helps you build a strong scientific foundation so you'll be prepared to join the environmental industry or take on environmental-related positions in other fields, or to continue with advanced studies.
