The Bachelor of Science Honours aims at consolidating and deepening the knowledge and expertise in applied natural science disciplines and to develop student’s capacity to conduct supervised research of an applied nature. The programme is purposefully designed to expose students to advanced scientific concepts, theories, tools, and methods. Students will be able to critically evaluate and apply theoretical and practical aspects of natural sciences in general; develop advanced information acquisition and have the skills required to analyse and solve a wide range of pressing challenges and needs in relation to science, technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in the current Namibian market and economy.
Candidates will be considered for admission to the Bachelor of Science Honours programme if they have a Bachelor of Science degree (with a major in Biology, or Chemistry or Physics) at NQF Level 7 from NUST. Alternatively, candidates should have an equivalent qualification at NQF level 7 from a recognised institution, worth at least 360 NQF credits, or a pre-NQF Bachelor degree of at least three years duration from a recognised institution with specialisations in Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
