Welcome to the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Beira Interior, in the city of Covilhã, Portugal. On this website you will find various information which we hope will be of great utility. You may obtain information about the structure of the courses, which indicates their frameworks and objectives, their programmes, as well as information to the relevant topics (for example, bibliography, notes, rating, tests and exams, etc.), teachers and contact details of the three departments (Secretariat, Course Director, Chairman of the Department) that make up the Faculty of Sciences: Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry.
There are good and practical reasons for choosing a career in science. Our courses lead to the fascinating world of physics, chemistry and mathematics, and it will be an opportunity to test your creativity, independence, as well as your ability to understand and explore.
And if you think you won't find any jobs in areas related to physics, chemistry and mathematics, think again. Which may be the industrial or business applications? There are many!
Some highly profitable companies (spin-offs, in financial parlance) explore ideas from physics, chemistry and mathematics, provide services and supply equipment. The Internet itself, as we know it today is to a large extent, a spin-off of fundamental research in physics, chemistry and mathematics.
