What do Chemists do?
Chemistry graduates have an extremely extensive and international labor spectrum since chemistry is fundamental in industry or other sectors. They constantly work as directors, patent agents, specific sales representatives, art conservators, forensic experts, technicians in laboratories, and business consultants. They can dedicate themselves to the documentation, certification, and validation of administrative procedures in companies and/or dependencies related to the private or public industry. In addition, since chemistry is the central science of the natural sciences, chemists can continue with international postgraduate studies in various areas and then serve as researchers in universities, companies, and government laboratories around the world.
As a graduate with a degree in chemistry, your mission will be to analyze, synthesize, purify, modify, and characterize chemical and biochemical components to improve the lives of thousands of people and contribute to the construction of a better future.
At Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro, we will prepare you to be a professional with the skills to specialize in any of the areas (new and traditional) of the world of chemistry. You can practice in Mexico, the United States, and the world.
