The Faculty of Science is committed to excellence in research in both basic and applied science. We believe only a professoriate staff engaged in frontier research can deliver the most up-to-date knowledge in the classroom. In turn, students’ learning and career development benefit from the international reputation and distinguished achievements of the University.
