The New Mexico Tech Chemistry Department is the only one with a purpose-built building. All students pass through the chemistry courses, but the department also educates the next generation of brilliant chemists. Techies have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and undergraduates often contribute to professors projects and doctoral-level research.
