Research Focus Areas
The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences rates among the most diverse and best science faculties in South Africa.
The Faculty contributes substantially to the building of research and teaching capacity in South Africa by producing highly skilled graduates, as well as generating new scientific knowledge through its research publications. A significant number of its scientists are evaluated internationally and acknowledged by the National Research Foundation (NRF) as researchers of high international standing – and in some cases as world leaders in their fields.
The Faculty is proud to host half of the A-rated NRF researchers and 40% of all the NRF-rated researchers at the University of Pretoria. Here we constantly push the frontiers of knowledge and develop new technology that will help the Faculty to stay abreast with the challenges of a constantly changing world.
