A number of chemistry faculty at BYU-Idaho are engaged in small-scale research projects designed to give students valuable, real-world experience and to further develop skills.   All areas of chemistry may be studied (analytical, inorganic, organic and physical) with a faculty mentor. Students can participate in research for credit (1 or 2 per semester) or for a small stipend each semester, but not both. Students are required to learn modern instrumentation techniques, laboratory skills, writing skills, and presentations skills.  Presentations on research done can be done via a written report, oral presentation, or poster presentation with a student’s faculty mentor.

BYU-Idaho now has a dedicated research laboratory separate from the teaching laboratories. This allows for more in-depth research projects.  With our new research laboratory, the department will add more advanced instrumentation and have more research opportunities available.

For further information about student research at BYU-Idaho, contact one of the faculty members involved with research.
