Chemistry at Western is designed to provide a foundation in the major themes of modern chemistry as applied to the natural, industrial and commercial worlds. This foundation allows for advanced studies in a wide range of research areas, from materials to energy, synthesis, biology, and biochemistry. 

This video shows one of our recently renovated first-year labs which is flooded with natural light, offering large workstations designed to support learning collaborations. The workstations are also fitted with computer-controlled modular equipment to simulate an authentic lab environment found in government and industry.
