The Faculty of Science aims to achieve academic excellence by promoting research and producing high quality, virtuous, and ethical graduates in the disciplines of science, mathematics, technology, and education. Presently, the Faculty of Science has the Science Education Center and nine departments including Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, General Science, Home Economics, Materials Science, Mathematics, Microbiology, and Physics which provide degree programs from the bachelor to the doctoral levels. The programs are designed to offer fundamental and advanced education for professional work. Many of these programs are carried out in collaboration with the Faculty of Education to enhance the teaching of science and mathematics nationwide. In addition, the Faculty brings science, mathematics, and technology to the public through teacher training courses, summer science camps, and on-demand scientific services.
