Dr. V Parameswaran Nair appointed acting Dean of Science



We are happy to announce two major changes in the leadership of the Division of Science. The departing dean, Dr. Tony Liss, has accepted the position of interim provost working with CCNY’s newly appointed president, Dr. Vincent Bourdeau. Dr. Liss leadership as the Dean has made him an excellent candidate for this crucial role in the new college administration. We bid him a warm farewell and hope to see him back as the Dean of Science in the future.

As of March 13, 2018, Dr. V Parameswaran Nair has become the Acting Dean in the Division of Science. Dr. Nair joins us from the Physics Department where he holds the tile of distinguished professor. His research interests focus primary on High Energy & Elementary Particles. Dr. Nair has honed administrative experience as chair of his department from 2007 to 2010. We are excited to welcome him in the office and looking forward to working with him through the transition period and beyond.

Science Division at CCNY


The Division of Science at City College has a proud legacy and a proud future.  Ten Nobel Laureates studied science and mathematics at CCNY.  World-renowned physicists like Myriam Sarachik, who serves on the governing council of the National Academy of Sciences, and well-known author Michio Kaku teach our students, and distinguished professors conduct cutting edge research on everything from climate change to structural biology to sustainable energy, and everything in between.  City College students, even as undergraduates, have an unprecedented opportunity to work in these labs.  In the past 8 years the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars and several Goldwater and Truman scholars, as well as graduates who have gone on to the most prestigious graduate schools, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation to pursue their research.

Science students at City College have a wide array of degree choices.  They enroll in Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in the fields and programs listed below.  The PHD is offered jointly by the City University of New York and City College in the laboratory-based sciences: biology, biochemistry, chemistry and physics.
