Laboratories facilities

The School of Postgraduate Studies and Research offers a dynamic research-intensive environment that fosters excellence in interdisciplinary research.

The multi-purpose research laboratory is the “home base” of the research groups. The research laboratory is operational throughout the year especially during the summer months when it accommodates a significant number of undergraduate research projects. The following list shows the major research areas and key facilities available in each discipline.
