Welcome to the UCF Department of Chemistry in beautiful and exciting Central Florida! We have a growing and diverse population of faculty and students carrying out research in five broad areas of study: materials, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, forensic chemistry, and chemistry education research. Our faculty collaborate with the National Center of Forensic Science, the Nanoscience and Technology Center, The College of Optics and Photonics, The College of Engineering and Computer Science and The College of Community Innovation and Education, thus preparing our students for complex problem solving in an interdisciplinary world.
In addition, UCF has 200,000 alumni stay in Florida to work in business, sales, or in research areas like nanotechnology, engineering, biomedical sciences or pharmaceuticals. At UCF, we practice what we teach. That’s why we are America’s Partnership University.
Our chemistry faculty members are actively engaged in collaborative, cutting-edge research. Our faculty members are involved in several research areas and joint collaborations with university partners.
