Fields of activity

These institutes are formed by various chairs (full professor positions). They provide students with a high-quality teaching in their research areas both at Bachelor and Master level, as well as Ph.D. level.

Most courses are available to both students of the Faculty of Science and students of other faculties within the framework of interdisciplinary programmes.

As well as teaching, the institutes carry out high-end research activities in their laboratories and issue every year numerous internationally recognised scientific publications. The students of the Faculty of Science benefit from the presence of these laboratories and take an active part in their work, as early as Bachelor level.

It should be noted that the Faculty of Science que la Faculté des sciences is in charge of the National Centre of Competence in Research «Plant Survival» to which five universities, the two federal polytechnic institutes as well as three federal research stations actively participate. At the University of Neuchâtel, the National Centre of Competence in Research involves many institutes of Biology, as well as some members of the Institutes of Chemistry and Geology-Hydrogeology.
