Faculty of Science
Over the past five years, Universiti Brunei Darussalam has been on an exciting progressive journey of change, from what is fundamentally a teaching university to a first class international university of excellence in teaching and research. Our vision is to be among the top 50 universities in Asia.
In education, we have introduced a new undergraduate degree program, Generation Next (GenNEXT), which emphasizes broad-based learning, programmes that cross-disciplinary boundaries and real world experiential learning in the form of the Discovery Year.
In research, UBD is fortunate to have the strong support of His Majesty’s government in providing funds and infrastructural support to advance research. This entails substantial increase in research funding and the development of infrastructural support as well as ample dedicated leave time for research and conferences.
In April 2014, UBD experienced another milestone with the announcement of the new salary scheme for the recruitment and retention of quality academic staff.
As Brunei Darussalam’s Premier National University, UBD invites suitably qualified candidates to join us in shaping global future leaders and contribute as a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Research.
