Students completing CHEM 107 and 117 and changing majors to curricula requiring CHEM 119 and CHEM 120 may substitute CHEM 107 and 117 for CHEM 119. Students may not receive credit for both CHEM 107 and 117 and CHEM 119.

General Chemistry for Engineering Students Laboratory Credits 1. 3 lab hours.

Introduction to important concepts and principles of chemistry in the laboratory; emphasis on areas considered most relevant in an engineering context; practical applications of chemical principles in engineering and technology. Students completing CHEM 117 and changing majors to curricula requiring CHEM 111 and CHEM 112 may substitute CHEM 117 for CHEM 111. Students may not receive credit for both CHEM 117 and CHEM 111. Students completing CHEM 107 and 117 and changing majors to curricula requiring CHEM 119 and CHEM 120 may substitute CHEM 107 and 117 for CHEM 119.

Meet the Team

In order to help our students purchase the correct materials and reduce the material costs, the Chemistry First Year Program has designed a webpage accessible only to those individuals with a TAMU NetID. To access the page, click the link below and log in using your TexasA&M Gmail account (NetID@tamu.edu). This requires DUO two-factor authentication. Duo can be setup at https://it.tamu.edu/duo if you have not done so already.

NOTE: If you are logged into Google with another user, you will be denied access. You must log out of any other Google accounts before being able to access the materials purchase page.
