The first Science students were admitted in 1990 under the Rectorship of Al Hajj Abubakar Kakyama Mayanja and Prof. T. Nsereko Gyagenda as the vice rector. When Prof. Adam Mahad, became Rector, he introduced three other faculties of which Faculty of Science was among. The first Dean was Prof. Mkafi, a mathematician from Nigeria.
