“It is owing to wonder that people began to philosophize, and wonder remains the beginning of knowledge”.
– Aristotle, Metaphysics, ca. 350 B.C.E.
I would like to welcome you to the Department of Sciences at Notre Dame University – Louaize – and guide you through our programs of study. The department is structured to include 3 interdisciplinary fields of undergraduate studies - Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental science – in addition to graduate programs in biology and industrial chemistry.
The science programs have been meticulously designed as to furnish the student with coherent and solid background knowledge in the respective area of specialization. Throughout the past decade, the department has successfully maintained its academic traditions of providing quality education to its students, owing to the excellent credentials and capacities of its full-time faculty members and competent staff. Our students merit, both theoretically and practically, from the diverse educational backgrounds and research expertise of faculty members. Assiduous efforts had been undertaken to upgrade the labs with proper equipment and facilities as to boost teaching and pave the way for a more challenging research environment. Remarkably, the department has been research active lately in some domains and this enriches our scholastic credentials and furthers the department’s educational outreach.
