Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science offers high-quality curriculum in the areas of pure and applied science.

All programs in this Faculty have a common first year module, giving students a strong and informed basis for choosing subsequent modules. Our teaching, learning, and assessment methods are aimed at giving students the opportunity to enhance existing skills and develop new ones. Our students have access to training in modern scientific laboratories which equips them with skills of global standards that they can use in real-life situations and at every level of their educational journey. To achieve this vision, the Faculty encourages academic staff to update their knowledge through postgraduate training, research, and workshops.

Whether you are a member of our faculty, a postdoctoral fellow, a graduate student, a member of our staff, an undergraduate, or a member of our broader public community, please let me welcome you to the College of Science.

Faculty Dean Message

The College of Sciences is distinguished by a community committed to providing world-class science education to the next generation, exploring our endlessly fascinating world, and answering profound questions about life itself.

We, scientists, are characteristically a curious bunch. From the far reaches of the universe to the depths of the world’s oceans, we want to know why things are the way they are, and how they work. We spend hours and hours puzzling through mathematical problems, knowing that beautiful solutions lie at the end of the intellectual journey. We have dedicated our lives to exploring cells, molecules, chemical reactions, ecological relationships, computer logic, the origins of life and the universe.

The discoveries that we make transform our view of ourselves and our place in the cosmos. They also have the potential to combine with other findings and impact our world, from personal health care to technology and the environment. The college also impacts the world by graduating more than 2,000 incredibly smart, creative and motivated students, year after year—alumni who become doctors, veterinarians, policymakers, professors, web developers, business owners, technology innovators, and much more.

The College of Science is here to support all of these journeys of discovery, and I welcome you to join us.

After all, discovery starts here, and what starts here changes the world.

Computer systems are all around us from home entertainment packages and mobile phones through to car control systems, agriculture, retail, and complex communication networks. If you want to work in an industry that has the potential to improve everyday life and the society we live in, working and designing components that effect all aspects of society, our course aims to give you the skills you need for a career in this thriving industry sector.
