“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.” (Louis Pasteur)
Welcome to the Department of Sciences at Notre Dame University-Louaize. The department has undergone a recent growth in facilities and majors to include 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 of education, and the opportunity to learn and accumulate a deep knowledge about biology, chemistry, biochemistry and environmental science, as well as their roles in our everyday lives, through both theoretical and experimental laboratory courses. The labs are always upgraded with essential equipment and facilities that strengthen teaching and scientific research.
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, agriculture, environment, and 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, some of our full-time faculty members are Fulbright alumni.
It is also worth noting that the department of sciences has established an academic/research partnership with the industry, such as INDEVCO-PACT, that has opened indispensable opportunities to science students to acquire technical training and research skills.
