A word from Dr. Lucy Lee, Dean of Science
As a fish cell biologist with expertise in developing fish cell lines for biomedical and biotechnological applications, I am passionate about providing students with opportunities to be involved in undergraduate research and helping them reach their career goals. UFV provides a first-class education for any young person wanting to study science and become part of a close-knit community of student and faculty scholars.

Science Clubs & Associations
Clubs and associations are a great way to meet new people, build relationships, and enhance your résumé. At UFV, you can either join a club or association that already exists, or you can even start your own.
Get work experience
Students who supplement their science training with hands-on experience are more desirable to employers who need highly specialized and skilled science staff.
That’s why UFV offers a co-operative education option. The co-op program allows you to alternate academic studies with paid work-terms in the science field to gain the experience you need to land your dream job or to apply to competitive graduate or professional schools.
Careers in science are diverse, exciting, and often well-paid.
Some scientists work in labs doing pure research: but many others use their skills in a variety of fields, including business, health, teaching, communications, policy making, resource exploitation, environmental protection, and more.
