A word from Dr. Lucy Lee, Dean, Faculty of Science
Welcome to UFV Science and into the world of personalized exploration and learning. Our courses are designed to enhance critical thinking abilities, integrating facts and observations with experimental knowledge and reasoning. We offer a new degree in Bachelor of Agricultural Science (beginning Winter 2017), a post-degree certificate in Data Analysis, an Engineering Physics diploma, various Bachelor of Science degrees, an Associate degree in Science, an Engineering Transfer program, and Science studies that cover a wide breadth of areas including Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics & Statistics. The choices are yours!
Our faculty are dedicated to teaching excellence and our small class sizes are conducive to life-long learning. The hands-on experiential approach has been valuable and the success of our alumni is the best testimony to our instructional ways.
Come explore UFV Science and move “Forward with Innovation & Discovery”.

Science Clubs & Associations
Clubs and associations are a great way to meet new people, build relationships, and enhance your résumé. At UFV, you can either join a club or association that already exists, or you can even start your own.
Get work experience
Students who supplement their science training with hands-on experience are more desirable to employers who need highly specialized and skilled science staff.
That’s why UFV offers a co-operative education option. The co-op program allows you to alternate academic studies with paid work-terms in the science field to gain the experience you need to land your dream job or to apply to competitive graduate or professional schools.
Careers in science are diverse, exciting, and often well-paid.
Some scientists work in labs doing pure research: but many others use their skills in a variety of fields, including business, health, teaching, communications, policy making, resource exploitation, environmental protection, and more.
