The College of Science
The College of Science is made up of six departments, all leading global research breakthroughs and fully focused on providing education that is inspiring, relevant and a route to a variety of fulfilling career opportunities.
Our College is based across two campuses with Biosciences, Chemistry, Geography and Physics, based at Singleton Park, with Computer Science and Mathematics based at the £32.5 million Computational Foundry on the University’s Bay Campus. Both campuses enjoy an enviable seafront location next to the breathtaking Swansea Bay.
At undergraduate level, and across all disciplines, students are taught a modern, relevant curriculum through innovative teaching. Students have the opportunity to work on research projects with our active researchers, giving them the research skills that are in demand by employers.
The College of Science is also keen to attract high-quality postgraduate students to join our research community and research students are guided by internationally-renowned researchers.
We produce agenda-setting research of the highest calibre. Recent research stories include the creation of hydrogen fuel from waste plastic, monitoring the calving of the Larsen C ice shelf and the conservation of seagrass meadows. Much of our research is aligned with contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
