The Humanities and Sciences is the foundation of a liberal arts education that will ignite a lifelong intellectual adventure. It is Aurora's only home for basic research, where free, open, and critical inquiry is pursued at the frontiers of knowledge. H&S offers boundless opportunities for faculty and students to rigorously explore the world around them.
Our faculty not only collaborates across disciplines, but with other colleges. Together, these faculties thoughtfully and imaginatively pursue challenges that transcend department walls.
It gives me pride and pleasure to introduce the Department and its website and I hope you will enjoy exploring our contributions in such areas as Physics, Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Environmental Science.
Sitting squarely in an Engineering Faculty, the Department of Humanities and Sciences is focused on devising innovative, correct solutions to hard problems, whilst ensuring that the solutions execute optimally. We believe that understanding is the first step to being able to solve these problems and implementation lies at the heart of understanding systems.
Thanks to the efforts of our researchers and teachers, and our students too, we continue to play a leading role in our discipline, both nationally and internationally.
