In the Faculty of Science, we encourage students to explore, to question, to open their minds. We nurture their passion for pushing boundaries and help them discover new ways to protect and improve our world. ​​

Now more than ever, we need science. Tomorrow’s scientists will help to change people’s lives for the better.

“I want to make STEM inclusive and show that any curious and creative person can study science. To interested girls: know that there is a community of women who support you.”

The Faculty of Science is a place where students ask “what if?” instead of “what is.”  We encourage and empower bold minds to push boundaries; and ignite a drive – within students as well as the ways in which they learn – towards innovation. With a focus on six key research areas, you can help us tackle some of the great scientific challenges of our time: ​

  • Fundamental and applied mathematics and statistics​
  • Biomolecular sciences and augmented biology​
  • Advanced materials and photonics​
  • Environment and resources​
  • Catalysis and renewable energy​
  • Quantum information​
