We study science to understand our world. We develop technology to improve our life. The programmes at the Division of Science and Technology are designed for our students to understand the world around us and apply acquired knowledge and skills to improve the quality of life during their long career. Our life science programs are also interdisciplinary: food and environment science programmes provide training in chemistry and biology with specific applications while applied psychology and food technology expose students to both theory and modern technologies. Our mathematical science and technology programmes (computer, data, statistics and financial mathematics) are designed to train students to meet the needs of a digital society.

With our dedicated teaching, research and administrative staff, the Division of Science and Technology is committed to providing the best possible learning environment and unique UIC experience for our students.
