I am well aware that the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura is a set of excellence in the field of science, and caters to the needs of the country by producing scientists who collectively work for the betterment of its countrymen. The university is proud of the high class research carried out at the Faculty of Applied Sciences as well as of its academic staff members among whom are world class scientists.
It is noteworthy that the Faculty of Applied Sciences has introduced new degree programmes to meet the requirements of the country, while maintaining the high standards of the existing degree programmes. The academic and non-academic staff members, as well as the students, are seen to work collectively to strive towards the many achievements of the faculty. Therefore, as the Vice-Chancellor of the university I am extremely proud of the performance of the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
We have witnessed immense development of the infrastructure facilities of the faculty to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning for its students. The faculty boasts of many initiatives to make it one of the best seats of learning science in the country.
I wish all the new entrants the very best of luck in their academic and extra- curricular activities during their tenure in this university and hope that all of them would be able to become first class scientists who will be a great strength to our mother country.
