Student laboratories

Our undergraduate laboratories provide for both bench experimentation (wet lab) and computer-assisted classroom learning (dry lab).

All our major teaching laboratories use modern audio-visual technology to support practical exams and experiments.

First-year laboratory

Our large first-year laboratory comprises five teaching pods, each of which has dry space for computers and report writing and wet lab areas for experimentation.

Students in each pod work with a tutor who uses information projected to a central screen to guide their learning.

Later-year laboratories

Our later-year laboratories house advanced instrumentation and equipment for chemistry projects conducted at second and third level.

They also feature dry lab areas for computer-assisted learning and data analysis.

Advanced Interdisciplinary Teaching Laboratory

The Advanced Teaching Laboratory gives students the opportunity to participate in cross-disciplinary projects that span chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology.

These include undergraduate research experiences at first, second and third level, and the CSI UQ Forensics course.

The modern workspace mimics a professional laboratory environment and is equipped with instrumentation that allows students to conduct advanced-level experiments and analysis.
