Leading in Diversity

The Faculty of Science and Engineering harbours a kaleidoscope of disciplines and research strengths. Our programmes in research (and education) range from nanomaterials and biomachinery to astronomy, from mathematics to pharmacy, from neurosciences to computer science, and from molecular and evolutionary biology to marine biology.

Our researchers pursue fundamental key questions while collaborating with partners from industry, the medical world and other realms of society. Frontline research groups explore new fields such as synthetic biology and sustainable energy use.
