Graduate Students

Our Graduates - Where are they now?

Many graduates have pursued their passion for research and science by enrolling in graduate school, becoming university professors, forensic chemists or scientists, creating environmental, pharmaceutical and household products. Others have established financially rewarding careers as managers and executives in high-tech industries that drive today’s economy. Professional schools are also chosen after graduation, opening career paths in exciting fields such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, engineering, pharmacy, and law.
