Welcome to the Faculty of Science, The Faculty of Science is one of the largest faculties in the University of Namibia. Our mission is to produce graduates of higher caliber who should make positive contributions to the social economic development of our country, through the application of acquired knowledge and skills in various fields of science and technology.
The Faculty’s mandate is to train and equip graduates with relevant skills and knowledge and to ensure they become independent and critical thinker. Science is an engine for any economic development, and therefore, we have a critical role to play. The faculty offers over 20 undergraduate programmes and over 16 postgraduate programmes which are responsive to industry and economic needs. Over 50% of our academic staff members in the faculty of science hold PhD’s qualifications and 20% are Professors.
The faculty enrol students who are ready to face challenges and expected to develop a culture of self-studying. The majority of our students find suitable employments after graduation. One of the major programs that the faculty have embarked upon is the identification of potential students for postgraduate programmes. This is so important in order to stimulate research and also to develop human capacity. We hope that you find trust in what we offer and expect you to join the University of Namibia.
The Faculty of Science welcome you all and if you join us, we wish you well in your studies.
