The Acquired Skills at Graduation

1. Biology: The bachelor program in Biology acquires a distinctive place because of its association with many sciences, such as agriculture, environmental sciences, genetics, genomics, and biotechnology. This program aims to prepare scientific cadres who are knowledgeable in the facts and theories of the life sciences, the logical and statistical procedures that are used in the formulation and testing of biological hypotheses, the necessary technical skills to conduct contemporary biological research, and the professional communicative skills to disseminate knowledge and science. Graduates will acquire special competitive abilities on various levels of education, health care, and industrial biotechnology.

2. Chemistry and Biochemistry: The bachelor programs in Chemistry and Biochemistry prepare students to pursue their higher education and also prepare them for careers in industry or specialized institutes. Both programs help students to acquire the basic concepts of analytical, physical, organic, and inorganic chemistry in addition to good practical training and high-quality research. Graduates' skills will be developed in using the scientific instruments and students will be able to analyze data in a scientific manner. Students will also understand the physical and chemical behaviors of biological phenomena and will be able to develop their logic and scientific assessment.

3. Computer Science: The program of Computer Science trains students on data and networking management, design management, site analysis, software, Web development, and network engineering. In this dynamically changing world of computing and information technology, computer science graduates compete more to attain a career in the growing sectors in Lebanon and the region; technology companies, IT/ICT institutes, and various companies of consulting, banking, financial and service.

4. Mathematics and Statistics: Jinan graduates of Mathematics or Statistics programs will acquire logical thinking skills and case analysis. They can also develop complex problem-solving skills. Graduates of these programs are eligible to compete in many specialized areas such as designing, accounts and service management, banking and finance, statistics, and education.

5. Physics: This program provides students with advanced skills, particularly in the areas of scientific problem solving, data processing, logical and effective thinking, effective communication, and computer applications. Graduates of this program can compete in the fields of engineering, computer science, systems analysis, and software development. Unlike other disciplines, Physics graduates have the potential to change their careers in response to the evolution of new emerging areas.

Research Directions

Members of the Faculty of Sciences are actively engaged in research.  Some of the research projects are conducted in collaboration with local, regional, and international science groups; these include:
