The Faculty of Science prepares students in their professional disciplines with an emphasis on scientific research and applications. This mission is fulfilled by a broad based, scientifically strong education, which enables the students to enter all areas of their profession upon graduation and to adapt to changes that may occur during professional life. By the end of the program, the graduate will be conversant with the wide range of topics relating to the natural sciences, be able to communicate effectively and be able to appreciate the professional and social role of the scientist. The faculty tries to foster a learning environment enhanced by faculty who encourage leadership, independence, self-respect, promotion of justice, and compassion in students. This is dependent on a sound scientific knowledge base, well developed expertise, critical thinking capabilities, moral reasoning, and communication skills.
