Faculty of Science and Technology

About Us


Sciences have been taught at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) from its inception in 1963. The Faculty has a proud history, having evolved from the Faculty of Natural Sciences which commenced teaching at Mona, Jamaica in 1949, and at St. Augustine, Trinidad in 1964.  Click here for further details on the history of our faculty and details on our list of FST Deans and FST Deputy Deans from October 1984 - Present.

Our full-time Academic Staff are mainly Caribbean nationals but we are also very much an international Faculty with about one third of our lecturers drawn from countries far and wide. Our degree programmes are well-respected regionally and internationally with many of our graduates working or pursuing further studies overseas.

We strive for excellence in Science through teaching, research, innovation and outreach. We remain committed to the development and application of the sciences. Our aim is to contribute to knowledge, and to shape the region's destiny."
We also seek to open the world of science and technology to as many people as possible, redefining what a scientist should look like and be under our "Science for ALL" initiative. 

The Faculty also strongly supports the Mission and Vision of the University of the West Indies (UWI).  Click here for further details on the UWI's Mission and Vision.
