Welcome to the Faculty of Science

It attracts more than half of all the tri-council research funding and holds four Canada Research Chairs. With the need for scientific and technical skills in the 21st century, students will find that the strengths of the Faculty make it an attractive one in which to further their education.

Here we see researchers stringing a net to catch and tag bats and, using radar to monitor their movement. We can also see a group of students taking a break on their field course and faculty members search for new field stations in Costa Rica. See photos here.
