Faculties and departments

Each faculty at UCT is a division that groups together departments related to a subject area. Each department also contains a number of smaller research groups. All students and academic staff belong  in the first instance to a faculty. Research at UCT, particularly where we are addressing large, complex problems, is increasingly interdisciplinary; as a result, most of our departments have close ties to departments in other faculties.
