Welcome to the Department of Sciences at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU). Our state-of-the-art facilities support four interdisciplinary fields of undergraduate studies: Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Environmental Science. Additionally, we offer two graduate programs in Biology and Industrial Chemistry, along with a minor in Biology.

The programs within the Department of Sciences are committed to providing students with a high-quality education and the opportunity to cultivate a profound understanding of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Environmental Science. Our educational approach is designed to nurture well-rounded graduates equipped with excellent communication skills, as well as both theoretical and technical expertise, achieved through a diverse array of laboratory courses.

Our dedicated full-time faculty members and staff are committed to delivering exceptional education, advising, and services, enabling students to pursue advanced graduate degrees in various fields within the realm of basic and applied sciences. These fields encompass medicine, healthcare, biotechnology, agriculture, pharmacy, environmental science, and industry. This is exemplified by the outstanding achievements of our alumni.

In addition to their excellence in teaching, our faculty members are actively engaged in research spanning traditional areas such as Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Environmental Science. Moreover, they embark on interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with other departments at NDU and through national and international partnerships. These projects provide both undergraduate and graduate students with invaluable opportunities to participate in research and contribute to scientific publications in reputable journals. Furthermore, many of our full-time faculty members are esteemed Fulbright and DAAD alumni.

It is noteworthy that the Department of Sciences has forged academic and research partnerships with esteemed institutions such as LARI, other local and international universities, and industry leaders such as INDEVCO-PACT. These collaborations offer science students essential opportunities for technical training and research skill development, further enriching their educational journey.
