Faculty of Sciences

Founded in 1831 by the Society of Jesus, the University of Namur (UNamur) carries on the values of the humanistic tradition through teaching and research: universality, quality, ethical commitment and solidarity. Its priority is to educate students and researchers as responsible and active members of society.

About

The Faculty of Sciences of the University of Namur serves more than one thousand students each year.

Seven departments of the faculty organize full bachelor programs (biology, chemistry, geography, geology, mathematics, physics, veterinary medicine).

In addition, full master programs are organized by four departments (biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics).

The Faculty of Sciences also hosts a department of sciences, philosophy and societies that gives transverse courses among all the faculties of the university.

About twenty laboratories and researchgroups perform research that is considered international state of the art.

They are frequently involved in international collaborations with excellent partner organizations.

Fundamental research and more-oriented research as well are carried out in all the departments of the Faculty of Sciences. Doctorate degree (Ph.D.) in sciences can be delivered by almost all the departments after an average of four years of studies following a masters degree.

At the heart of the University’s three missions, i.e., teaching, research and public service, research occupies a pivotal and special place, whence teaching and economical and social progress flow.

Already renowned for their excellence in teaching, UNamur is increasingly recognized for the quality of her research. Many research units have emerged from within six faculties and are called units, departments, laboratories, groups, cells, poles or centers. They gather academic, scientific, administrative and technical staff, Belgian or otherwise, all sharing a common passion for research.

UNamur belongs to and partake in several, often interdisciplinary, research networks at the local, regional, federal, European, and international level.

UNamur’s research strategy is determined by the Board of Trustees, under the guidance of the research Council, and aims at excellence. It maintains the necessary balance between fundamental and applied research and between social and exact sciences. Special attention is given to Ph.D. students who constitute an essential link in academic research.
