Nanotechnology and genomics are comparatively new sciences that owe their very existence to progress in chemical analysis and theory during the past generation. Elion, co-recipient of the 1988 Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology, earned a master's degree in chemistry in our department, and more recently, Phil Baran a BS recipient added a Mac Arthur Foundation "genius" grant to his growing list of accolades as a professor at Scripps Research Institute.
Potential earnings for most graduates within the field can be ,570 annually.Nuclear engineering is among one of the highest paying undergraduate degree programs with a great earnings potential.A series of individualized laboratory experiments is offered.There are several opportunities for NYU Chemistry undergraduates to engage in group activities.The Department has been designated by the ACS as a landmark in commemoration of this event. Draper, chairman of the department and first president of the ACS, was an early pioneer in the development of photography, working with Professor Samuel F. For highly motivated students, there are advanced courses that cover the general and organic chemistry required for several science majors and for the pre-health curriculum.
These courses form a core for either the chemistry or the biochemistry major.The Chemists' Club is comprised of chemists of every sort (industry, academia, science professionals, etc.) and their activities provide professional networking opportunities for all its members. The newest group on campus is the NYU student chapter of the American Chemical Society, seeking to advance a mission of service and professional development.Their programming aims to integrate workshops and mentorship opportunities to its members with outreach activities to the local community. With the exception of PLU and ISP, membership in these organizations is free for NYU Chemistry students.Phi Lambda Upsilon, the national chemistry honor society, inducts members each year, based on academic performance.NYU's Alpha Lambda Chapter of PLU hosts inclusive activities that tend to focus on academics and are a benefit to all students, including review sessions before major exams, and round table discussions with faculty members about research. Iota Sigma Pi (ISP), the National Honor Society for Women in Chemistry has an active chapter, Vanadium, at NYU.Earnings for individuals who complete aircraft pilots and flight engineers have the potential to be as high as 1,680 annually.
