Welcome to USU
Professor Alvan Hengge:
Our department is building research emphasis areas in the following fields:
If you have interests in any of these areas, take a serious look at our graduate programs. Many of these research emphasis groups have collaborations with researchers in other departments around campus, offering our graduate students a rich interdisciplinary experience.
One of the things a student remembers after they graduate is the physical surroundings during their graduate training. We are therefore proud of the new Departmental building that opened in early 2000. Widtsoe Hall is undoubtedly one of the finest chemistry and biochemistry facilities in the country. The labs were designed in part by members of our Department, and so are not only beautiful but highly functional, and a pleasure to work in.
In short, I enthusiastically urge you to examine this website thoroughly and consider doing your graduate work in this Department. And please consider this an invitation to contact any of our faculty or myself if you have any questions or matters in which we might assist you.
