The Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) was established officially on the 19th. of July, 1999 as a result of restructuring of four science-based faculties namely the Faculty of Life Sciences, the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences, The Faculty of Physical and Applied Sciences, and the Faculty of Science and Natural Resources.

The Faculty of Science and Technology strives to be the centre of excellence in teaching, research and community services. FST encourages multidiscipline and innovative research towards attaining national and international recognition. Programmes are offered based on the expertise available in five schools in the Faculty. They are:

 School of Applied Physics
 School of Biosciences and Biotechnology
 School of Chemical Sciences and Food Technology
 School of Mathematical Sciences
 School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences
