Faculty of Science – FPS
We enrol students both at undergraduate and graduate level. Our program prepares students for the award of Bachelor’s degree in Applied mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, and Physics. We also have a Masters degree in Biodiversity Conservation, and Applied Mathematics.
At the Faculty of Science we aim at contributing to the prosperity of students on the Rwandan, regional and world scene. This is through enhanced teaching that gives hands on experience to our students in areas of learning, research, and community involvement as clearly streamlined in the university’s mission statement. In working towards this mission, we aspire to be internationally recognized for excellence in teaching and among the leaders in the field of science, thus providing an interdisciplinary connecting science education and research.
Have you been wondering where to build your career in Sciences, come study with us at the Faculty of Science of the National University of Rwanda!
In 1974 a centre for study and experimentation of energy in Rwanda was created within the Faculty of Sciences. It became autonomous since 1977.
