Faculty of Science

In the UPEI Faculty of Science, our strong focus on developing a personal experience for our students, in the classroom or in a teaching or research laboratory setting, is a point of pride.

This is science at its best—a cycle of learning and analysis leading us to answers and better questions. This is science at UPEI.

A diverse blend of programs combining innovative leaning approaches with practical, hands-on experience on the job, in a laboratory, and in the field.
