Course Descriptions

A chemistry degree is excellent preparation for medical school and related fields, and also for careers in business, law or education. Many students, including chemistry majors, may be interested in a second major or minor in biochemistry and molecular biology. Other common choices include biology, chemical engineering and mathematics.

CHEM 520 - Electronics for Scientists

  • Credit Hours: 3R-4L-4C
  • Term Available: -
  • Graduate Studies Eligible: No
  • Prerequisites: CHEM 326 or CHEM 327 or consent of instructor
  • Corequisites: None

A fundamental course on understanding important electronic systems as they pertain to chemical signals and instrumentation. Topics include analog systems (RC circuits, diodes, transistors, and operational amplifiers), digital systems (logic gates, shift registers, and lock-in amplifiers), and signal enhancement and noise reduction modules. The laboratory component will showcase basic circuit design and construction, and will culminate with a student-built chemical instrument. For graduate credit there will be an additional project beyond the requirements for CHEM420. A student may not take both CHEM420 and CHEM520 for credit.
