    The Faculty of Science was one of the founding Faculties in Cross River University of Technology. It is at present made up of five Departments, namely, Department of Biological Sciences, Department of Chemical Sciences, Department of Computer Science, Department of Mathematics/Statistics, and Department of Physics. The Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Mathematics/Statistics each runs two separate B.Sc. programmes which are Biology and Microbiology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Mathematics and Statistics respectively.

    Promotion
    Some members of staff were promoted to the position of Professors and Associate Professors in the 2012 and 2013 Assessment years.

    Accreditation
    Two programmes in the Faculty of Science were granted full accreditation status by the National Universities Commission (NUC). The remaining progrmmes are awaiting a reaccreditation visit by the NUC. These are: B.Sc. Biology, B.Sc Microbiology, B.Sc. Biochemistry, B.Sc. Chemistry, B.Sc. Statistics and B.ScMathematics.

    Students Enrolment and Graduation
    There has been a considerable increase on student intake from an initial enrolment of 300 and 200 to about 2500 in 2013. The Faculty has also witnessed a significant progression from barely 100 on the graduation list in 2006 to about 1000 in 2013.
