Fakulti Sains Sepintas Lalu

IMGP0018c17fsSejarah Fakulti Sains bermula dengan penubuhan Pusat Pengajian Sains (PPS) pada tahun 1972 di Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur.Pada mulanya Pusat Pengajian Sains mengendalikan pengajaran dalam bidang Fizik, Kimia, dan Matematik bagi Fakulti Kejuruteraan di Institut Teknologi Kebangsaan (ITK). Pada tahun yang sama Kursus Diploma Sains dan Pendidikan diwujudkan di bawah pengendalian PPS dengan kerjasama Kementerian Pendidikan. PPS telah dinaiktaraf sebagai fakulti dengan nama Fakulti Sains (FS) pada tahun 1981. Pada tahun 1987 Fakulti Sains mula mengendalikan Kursus Ijazah Sarjana Muda Sains Industri (SSI) dengan penawaran kursus dalam bidang Fizik, Kimia dan Matematik. Pada tahun berikutnya, 1988, Fakulti Sains berpindah ke Kampus Skudai, Johor. Setelah itu FS banyak mengalami penambahbaikan dari segi akademik, fasiliti, staf dan mahasiswa.

Penstrukturan semula FS mewujudkan tiga jabatan utama iaitu Jabatan Kimia, Jabatan Fizik dan Jabatan Matematik, dengan tambahan dua institut kecemerlangan iaitu Institut Ibnu Sina dan Institut Sains Fotonik. Fakulti Sains menawarkan program pra siswazah dan pasca siswazah dengan mod pembelajaran kerja kursus dan penyelidikan. FS mempunyai misi dan visi jelas dalam memperkayakan harta intelek bidang sains dan matematik.  FS juga ternyata penting dalam jaringan sistem pendidikan di Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) dan banyak menyumbang dalam bidang sains dan matematik.
