Departments and science centres

The faculty departments are the basic units for education and research in one or several related areas. The department is the primary work place, not just for students, teachers and researchers, but also for other personnel such as secretaries, janitors, technicians and instrument makers.

There are also a few Research Centres within the faculty. Some of them are also connected to the Faculty of Science and Technology. These centres are focused on research and not directly related to undergraduate education.
