Faculty of Natural Science
Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, which changed all our lives in March, 2020, the Faculty of Natural Sciences remains well placed to make a difference in an ever-changing global society with an exponentially increasing dependence on technology. In the past decade an investment of ca. R1.3 billion has been made in science infrastructure and research facilities in the Faculty. Since 2010 the Faculty has been the recipient of new, state-of-the-art Chemical, Life Sciences and Computational and Mathematical Sciences buildings and has been the beneficiary of an influx of high-end research equipment. Concomitant with this investment, the Faculty has been able to annually graduate record numbers of MSc and PhD graduates, and continuously increase its outputs of peer-reviewed research publications in national and international journals.
