Welcome to the Department of Sciences at Notre Dame University-Louaize. The department state of the art facilities support four interdisciplinary fields of undergraduate studies - Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Environmental science – in addition to two graduate programs in biology and industrial chemistry. The department also offers a minor in Biology.
The programs at the department of Sciences provide students with high quality education, and the opportunity to learn and accumulate a deep knowledge about biology, chemistry, biochemistry and environmental science. Our programs are designed to develop a well-rounded graduate with excellent communication skills and both theoretical and technical skills through a variety of laboratory courses.
Our distinguished full-time faculty members and staff provide students with high quality education, advising and services, allowing them to pursue further graduate degrees in the various fields of the basic and applied sciences, including medicine, health, biotechnology, agriculture, pharmacy, environment, and the industry, a fact that is shown by the excelling of our alumni.
Beside excellence in teaching, our faculties are very active in research; with interests span the traditional areas of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Environmental science. In addition, our faculties are also working on several interdisciplinary projects (Sciences, Materials Science and Medicine etc.) with other departments at NDU and with national and international collaborations, which provide undergraduate and graduate students a chance to become involved in such projects, and expose them to research and good scientific journals publications. Furthermore, many of our full-time faculty members are Fulbright and DAAD alumni.
It is also worth noting that the department of sciences has established an academic/research partnership with other research centers such as LARI and other local and international universities and the industry, such as INDEVCO-PACT, that has opened indispensable opportunities to science students to acquire technical training and research skills.
