The Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University in Ústí nad Labem is a modern tertiary institution and the largest institution in the Ústí nad Labem region focusing on education and development of knowledge in natural sciences. In addition to its tradition spanning over more than sixty years, the university offers unconventional backdrop of the natural beauties of Northern Bohemia (the Elbe valley, the Bohemian Switzerland and the Central Bohemia Uplands national parks). The intimate environment and individual approach to students are among the strengths of our university.
The faculty provides tertiary education at all three levels (Bc., Mgr., Ph.D.) for natural sciences experts and for future natural science teachers at primary and secondary schools. The faculty cooperates with numerous Czech and foreign partners, as well as the private sector.
The faculty offers a wide range of fields, starting from biology and physics through geography and information technologies to mathematics and chemistry in fulltime or combined mode of study. The most recent additions to the fields taught at the faculty include Applied Nanotechnologies, Toxicology and Analysis of Harmful Substances and Computer Modelling in Science and Technology.
Graduates find employment in public administration institutions, bodies and institutions of the European Union, nature conservation, land-use planning, laboratories, research institutes, in tourism, as network administrators or programmers and developers of web applications in the public and private sector. Last but not least, some of our graduates work as natural sciences teachers at primary and secondary schools.
