Note from the Chair

It is owing to wonder that people began to philosophize, and wonder remains the beginning of knowledge" (Aristotle, Metaphysics, ca. 350 B.C.E.)

I would like to welcome you to the Department of Sciences at Notre Dame University-Louaize – and guide you through our programs of study. The department is structured to include 4 interdisciplinary fields of undergraduate studies - Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Environmental science – in addition to graduate programs in biology and industrial chemistry.

The science programs have been meticulously designed as to furnish the student with coherent and solid background knowledge in the respective area of specialization. Our program curricula prepare students to pursue further graduate degrees in the various fields of the basic and applied sciences, including medicine, health, agriculture, environment, and industry. Throughout the past decade, the department has successfully maintained its academic traditions of providing quality education to its students, owing to the excellent credentials and capacities of its full-time faculty members and competent staff. Our students merit, both theoretically and practically, from the diverse educational backgrounds and research expertise of faculty members.  Assiduous efforts had been undertaken to upgrade the labs with proper equipment and facilities as to boost teaching and pave the way for a more challenging research environment. With this spirit maintained, the department of sciences has established an academic/research partnership with the industry, such as INDEVCO-PACT, that has opened indispensable opportunities to sciences students to acquire technical training and research skills. Remarkably, the department has been research active lately in some domains and this enriches our scholastic credentials and furthers the department’s educational outreach.


Our ambitions are limitless.
In this respect, I encourage you to check out our science programs:

  • B.S. in Biology
  • B.S. in Biochemistry
  • B.S. in Chemistry
  • B.S. in Environmental Science
  • M.S. in Biology
  • M.S. in Industrial Chemistry
  • Minor in Biology
