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.

In March, the University Senate had to make the difficult decision to postpone the May Convocation ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all disappointed that we are unable to celebrate this milestone in person right now, but we are excited to recognize the Class of 2020 in other ways!
