Over 400 students and 50 faculty and staff members interact in a family atmosphere governed by mutual respect, friendliness, and professionalism. Our Faculty has two main missions, teaching and research. Our classes are small, rarely exceeding 25 students, allowing professors and students to get to closely know each other.
Our curricula, combining theoretical and practical knowledge, give students the opportunity to gain hands-on training, constituting a major advantage whether they are headed for the job market, graduate studies or professional schools. The quality of our professors, the quality and scope of our infrastructure, and our national and international reputation, make a BSc or an MSc from our Faculty worth obtaining, and open the doors towards a career in industry, education or the professional world.
