In the world of the increasing technological complexity, the knowledge of basic and industrial science is a gateway to the pursuit of many fields, though necessary and essential, the availability of capital by itself is not sufficient enough to automatically enhance socio-economic development.

Industrial Science is the driving force behind product production. It is this science that is employed by production companies in order to develop, adapt, and produce a product for the consumer market. In addition to laboratory work, Ph.D. candidates have a heavy class load and must also develop and defend a doctoral dissertation.
