The Faculty of Science is a strong, research-oriented Faculty with top-rated scientists and modern research laboratories and facilities. We are committed to providing our students the best education in science and be a nursery for future scientists. It has always been the Faculty’s strategy to nurture undergraduate research. Since 2007, the Faculty has implemented the Overseas Research Fellowship and the Summer Research Fellowship Schemes providing financial support to students to go to overseas laboratories or institutes or to do research in a supervisor’s laboratory in the Science Faculty.
In addition, the Faculty has been conducting Undergraduate Research Colloquium, in which students would present their final year project to all students and prizes would be given to outstanding presentations. It is an opportunity for students to present their research findings in poster sessions and at a seminar, an invaluable opportunity to develop their presentation skills and defend as well as explain their research work.
In the past 3 years, about 300 students were engaged in project or directed study in their senior year of study to work on a topic and do a presentation as well as write to a thesis under supervision of a teacher; while about 130 students participated in the Summer Research Fellowship or Overseas Research Fellowship Schemes to engage in research in summer.

Miss Rabbani Mashiat
Novel mechanisms for targeting Cancer Stem cells using nucleoside analogues and nanotechnology based drug delivery
This faculty-wide activity aims at providing a platform for Science undergraduate students taking project courses to share their research findings with others, and to gain experience in communicating scientific knowledge in a professional setting. In addition, it demonstrates project-based learning to other Science undergraduate students of junior years and encourages them to enroll in projects in their subsequent years of study. Selected students taking the project or directed studies course present their work in the Undergraduate Research Colloquium.
All participants will be recognized in the transcript for participating in the Research Colloquium and award a certificate. Selected poster presenters will be awarded book vouchers.
