CHE 1020  Introduction to Chemistry  (4)                                                     fall/spring
Descriptive chemistry; atomic and molecular structure; chemical reactions; and the fundamentals of chemistry are studied. Laboratory work complements lectures and develops basic laboratory techniques. Previous successful completion of a course in chemistry is highly desirable; 3 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory per week.  Prerequisite: None

CHE 1031  General Chemistry I  (4)                                                               fall/spring
This course is intended for engineering students and consists of the fundamentals of general and physical chemistry. Laboratory work is designed to amplify the lectures, provide an introduction to laboratory techniques, and introduce some methods of analysis currently used in industry; 3 hours of lecture, 3 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: Math placement level 3

CHE 2060  Principles of Organic Chemistry (4)                                        as required
This course is designed to enhance knowledge and skills in organic chemistry. It includes a general overview of the following organic compounds: aliphatic compounds (hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, and carbohydrates); cyclic compounds; and combinations of aliphatic and cyclic structures (including amino and nucleic acids). Important areas of organic chemistry are covered, including polymerization, hydrogenation, isomerization, photochemistry, and stereochemistry; 3 hours of lecture, 3 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: CHE 1031
