Join the Next Generation of Chemical Scientists 

Chemistry is at the center of so many scientific breakthroughs today.

Advanced tools in chemical science and technology — including new ways to acquire chemical data and quantitative informatics to analyze that data and extract useful information — have led to discoveries in biotech, pharmaceuticals, clean energy and more.

The new Master of Science in Applied Chemical Science & Technology at the University of Washington will teach you how to harness these tools for real-world problem solving and scientific advancement.

Xiaosong Li, professor of chemistry and co-director of the Master of Science in Applied Chemical Science & Technology program, explains how the program teaches students to use advanced technology and tools for scientific discovery.
