Messsage from the Dean
Welcome to the Faculty of Science & Technology (FST), The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine. We are extremely proud and delighted that you have chosen the FST for your tertiary education. This new Faculty which partially replaces the former Faculty of Science & Agriculture, will continue to focus on traditional and important disciplines in science such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Biological Sciences. We have also begun new programmes in exciting and important areas of technology such as, Environmental Technology, Information Technology, and Alternative Energy Technology and are in the process of developing new programmes in Biotechnology, Electronics and Computer Technology.
The FST is the second largest faculty at the St Augustine Campus and also the most diverse in terms of academic programmes offered. At the FST we have highly qualified and competent academic, administrative, technical and support staff, and many state-of-the-art laboratories. We promise to offer you an educational experience that is second to none.
This Booklet contains important information on Faculty Regulations as well as details on our various programmes and courses. We encourage you to become very familiar with it. We have put in place several support systems in order to facilitate your success in your chosen field of study. We encourage you to visit your academic advisor on a regular basis to seek assistance in planning your academic programme of study. We also have a Student Services Unit and a dedicated Deputy Dean (Student Matters) who is readily available to assist in addressing problems that you may encounter from time to time.
On behalf of the staff of the Faculty of Science and Technology, I wish you a warm welcome as well as an enjoyable and successful stay in our Faculty.
