About the Faculty

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.  


The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) offers a large number of Bachelor's programmes (overseen by our Undergraduate School of Science and Engineering) and Master's programmes (overseen by our Graduate School of Science and Engineering). Most of our Bachelor's (BSc) and Master's degree programmes (MSc) are fully English-taught, thus allowing students from all over the world to follow a degree programme with us.

For the Graduate School of Science and Engineering (GSSE) another important task is to provide an optimal training environment for all PhD students in the faculty. To this end, the GSSE organises courses in 'transferable skills,' coordinates and advertises courses offered by other graduate schools and research schools, provides practical information for PhD students, organises meetings and other networking activities, and provides a forum for discussion.

All educational activities at the faculty are facilitated and supported by the Educational Support Centre (ESC).


Research at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is done in a number of research institutes. Researchers and research groups also participate in different international, national and local research institutes.
