Since its inception in 1913, the Science faculty of the University of Colombo has occupied a pivotal position among the Science Faculties in Sri Lankan Universities. According to the latest published data, different employers in both the public and private sectors have shown keen interest in recruiting Colombo University science graduates. This is the result of providing its students with a peaceful learning environment, devoid of unrest and violence.
The Faculty of Science of the University of Colombo offers the following streams as academic qualifications.
- Physical Sciences
- Biological Sciences
- Industrial Statistics & Mathematical Finance

In addition Computer Science is offered as a main subject.
All the degree programs offered by the faculty of science are challenging, and expose the students to the real world challenges. But the highly competitive job market in Sri Lanka and worldwide seeks personnel with adequate academic qualifications as well as professional qualifications. Thus it is imperative that a graduate completes a good professional qualification along with his/her degree program.
