Dean
Faculty of Science


Anniversary is a time for reflection. The Faculty of Science has come a long way since its establishment back in 1939. Over the years, the Faculty has expanded and developed to become one of the largest faculties in the University. As of 2008, we now have over 115 professorial staff and about 2000 undergraduate and postgraduate students studying and working in a lively and intellectually vibrant environment. What has remained unchanged is our commitment to academic and research excellence, quality science education and serving the community.

The Platinum Jubilee Anniversary is an appropriate time to celebrate the achievements of our alumni and the Faculty as well as looking ahead to the future. At this significant moment in time, in addition to our planning of the Homecoming Day and the Anniversary Dinner to reunion and reconnect our alumni and friends, the Faculty would like to take this opportunity to further enhance the image and linkage of science to our community. Special lectures entitled “70th Anniversary Lecture Series” with a theme on science and the future have been organized, which will be delivered by our outstanding alumni for the general public. A series of ‘Science-in-Action’ lectures with hands-on practice and demonstrations will be presented to students and teachers of secondary schools to further cultivate their interest in science. The Faculty also established a ‘70th Anniversary Alumni Fund’ to help support various experiential learning activities, which enables our undergraduate students to enrich their learning experience in our new science curriculum.

Only with strong support from our alumni, colleagues, students and friends, that the Faculty can be confident that our endeavor to provide the best education for science students, expand the frontier of scientific knowledge and nurture leaders of the next generation will continue to be successful. The Anniversary is our chance to celebrate our past success and look forward to the future. I hope you will all join with us on this occasion and make this a memorable event.
