What do our students say?

 

I have a passion for solving problems with cancer, specifically Endometrial Cancer. There is a big disparity in the survivor-ship of women of color with this cancer in particular. I have already secured a post-doctorate position to further my research. The Applied Science and Technology Ph.D. has given me the knowledge, confidence and credentials to pursue ground-breaking solutions.

Sherette Godfrey - AST Ph.D. Student

 

I have always loved chemistry. The Applied Science and Technology Program gives me an opportunity to pursue real-world applications and solve problems using chemistry.  I am interested in solving major world problems using my knowledge of chemistry, research and theory plus empirical methodologies. This is what we are learning with an outstanding faculty and excellent labs and facilities.
