Research and Innovation in the Sciences

Since 2009, UBD has transformed from a traditional teaching university into a university that incorporates both teaching and research. Over the past 7 years, the Sciences has played a significant contribution towards drastic outcomes in research and innovation. Among them, researchers have managed to secure susbtantive internal and external research grants. This has allowed the advancement of the sciences which in turn has led to the establishment of a global connectivity while maintaining regional identity and the nation’s needs.

With the establishment of The Office of AVC (Innovation and Enterprise) UBD is transformed into a university of innovation an enterprise. Faculty of Science is actively supporting the university in research and equipment centralizing effort (Centra2).
