The department features state-of-the-art instrumentation and instructional facilities. We have a gas chromatography/mass spectrometer, as well as an infrared spectrometer, along with standard laboratory glassware and materials. Our classes are taught in smart classrooms which include a modern studio classroom and a student/instructor ratio is maintained at 35:1 or below.​​
