Our Departments










On behalf of the Staff of the Faculty of Science & Technology (FST), The University of the West Indies, St Augustine, I bid you a warm welcome. In this vein, the FST offers programmes in the fundamental sciences: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics to provide the framework for any scientific endeavor. Reflective of our vibrant research activity, we offer programmes in important areas of technology including Environmental Technology, Information Technology, Renewable Energy Technology, Biotechnology, Electronics, Computer Science & Technology, Environmental Science and Biomedical Technology. At the St Augustine Campus, the FST delivers a diverse suite of academic programmes by highly qualified and committed academic, administrative, technical and support staff. We offer you robust educational experiences and are invested in building your capacity to observe phenomena, analyze data and synthesize hypotheses that advance our understanding of the world.

This document contains important information on Faculty Regulations as well as details on our programmes. It is an indispensable asset for navigating your progress and in taking advantage of the valuable guidance available from regular meetings with your academic advisors. At a time when the value of tertiary education is being questioned, UWI graduates continue to find their place in the job market and on average occupy the higher earning brackets. Our alumni also represent us proudly on the world stage when their careers take them further afield. Your ability to focus and remain dedicated will reap rich rewards academically. Most departments operate Help Desks that are designed to meet students at their particular skill level and to build frameworks for growth. There are also several support systems in place under the umbrella of the Division of Student Services & Development. I urge you to consider club and other activities to build your networks and to experience campus life.

Dr. Brian N. Cockburn
