The Natural Science Faculty has developed a unique profile through a set of programmes which are interdisciplinary and orientated towards applications. These programs offer maximal flexibility to me your individual requirements, and open up a host of opportunities upon graduation.

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living.
