Science

The future challenge for science is not only to develop knowledge, but also to bring it forward and make it accessible as a platform for political decisions; humanity faces big challenges and science plays a decisive role both in discovering problems and in finding solutions for them.

Studying at the Faculty of Science

Knowledge and research within science have laid the foundation for much of modern society’s prosperity. However, rapid developments in technology and consumption along with growing economies have also generated global problems associated with overexploitation of water, land and air. To ensure a wise exploitation of the planet’s resources in the future does not only require strengthened research efforts, but also that politicians and other decision makers become aware of and base their decisions on scientific knowledge.

Science at Lund University is characterised by first-class research within a variety of areas, from molecular to ecological systems and from biosphere studies to astronomy and high-energy particle physics. Our research and education are carried out within all major research areas: astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth sciences, environmental sciences, physics and mathematics.

The wide spectrum of research, with several world-leading research groups, serves as a platform for outstanding higher education and much of the teaching is carried out in the laboratories connected to the research front line. Our teachers are all recruited from among the active researchers, thus our students are particularly well trained in scientific method.

If you want to contribute to a sound and sustainable future development, science education at Lund University is the right choice. An education in science is also a gateway to a great number of R&D companies and science parks within the surrounding Copenhange-Malmö region – a hub for hightech companies and research organisations especially within pharmaceuticals/biotechnology, IT/telecommunication, food and environment. The Copenhagen-Malmö region is at the forefront in Europe within these areas.
