  • Computer Resources

    Computer Resources

    The Chemistry Department has robust software capable of advanced computation in its Learning Commons (Foster 413/414) as well as in faculty research labs of its computational chemists. The University possesses a campus site-license for HyperChem Molecular Modeling software. The Department has a site license for CambridgeSoft ChemDraw for routinely drawing structural formulas. Additionally, two workstations in the physical chemistry instructional lab run Gaussian for advanced computation. This software is used routinely in instruction throughout the curriculum as well as in undergraduate and graduate research. Two advanced computational laboratories are available in Foster Hall for faculty/student research projects. The Department implemented a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) that allows students and faculty to run Microsoft and chemistry software on their own personal devices both on and off campus anywhere they can get a wireless signal.
