The Faculty conducts Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Study Programmes and Bachelor of Science Honors (B.Sc.Hons) Study Programmes. Initially, a student registers for a B.Sc. Study Programme, and at the end of the second academic year, he/she may continue to follow the B.Sc. Study Programme or register for an Honors Study Programme. The second option is possible only if the student fulfills certain criteria as stipulated in the section "Criteria for Selection to an Honors Study Programme" in the Faculty student handbook. The duration of a B.Sc. Study Programme is three academic years, while that of a Honors Study Programme is four academic years. At the end of 3rd academic year, B.Sc. Study students may be selected to follow a B.Sc. Honors Study Programme in Applied Sciences based on their performance.

The Faculty also conducts four-year B.Sc. Honors Study Programmes in Computation and Management (jointly with the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Management) and in Statistics and Operations Research for students admitted through separate windows by the University Grants Commission (UGC).
