The Faculty offers 5 distinctive degree programmes which are conducted in English medium. The Following sub sections will illustrate the structure and methodology of conducting the respective degree programme.
The Technology program was commenced on January 2017 at Rajarata University of Sri lanka Mihintale centralizing the Faculty of Applied Sciences. At present the Faculty consists with five Departments Bio Process Technology, Electrical & Electronic Technology, Food Technology, Information & Communication Technology and Materials Technology in which it collaborates with a vivid and unique structure to the national and international industry base.
Biosystems Technology offers an integrative degree program focusing on teaching and research in two overarching research areas, namely, Bioprocess Technology and Food Technology. The overall annual intake for the Biosystems Technology programmes is approximately 85, where prospective students would have to qualify by following the GCE (A/L) technology stream under Biosystems Technology.
Engineering Technology degree program offers Bachelor of Engineering Technology (BET) degree. This is a four year professional degree programme designed under the guidelines of Institute of Engineers of Sri Lanka (IESL). Students who wish to follow this degree programme should pass the Science for Technology and Engineering Technology subjects at G.C.E. A/L examination. Annually 75 students will be admitted to this degree programme and they will be divided between the two specialization areas as Electrical & Electronic Technology and Materials Technology.
The Information and Communication Technology degree program offers a 4-year degree program leading to Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT). This program is designed under the guidelines of Institute of Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL). Students who wish to follow this degree program should pass the Science for Technology and Information and Communication Technology subjects at the G.C.E. A/L examination. The program accommodates an annual intake of 75 students.
Credit rating is an expression which is used to denote the “academic value” of a course.
According to the Sri Lanka Qualification Framework (SLQF), fifty notional learning hours for a taught course, laboratory studies course or field studies is equivalent to one credit. A norm of one hundred notional hours for Industrial Training and Research also have the same credit rating.
For courses with lectures only
15 hours of lectures = 1 credit
For courses with laboratory work only
30 – 45 hours of laboratory work = 1 credit
60 – 75 hours of laboratory work = 2 credit
For courses with both lectures and laboratory work only
10 hours of lectures + 15 hours of laboratory work = 1 credit
For courses with field work only
45 hours of field work = 1 credit
2 weeks of industrial training = 1 credit
1 – 2 weeks of research = 1 credit

Each course is assigned with a course code which consists of seven alphanumeric characters as follows:
First three letters: Field of study / Subject
First digit: Year of study within the Degree Programme
Second digit: The credit rating
Last two-digits: The serial number of the course
Grade Grade Point Value

C – 1.7
Grade point average
Grade point average (GPA) is the credit-weighted arithmetic mean of the grade point values. The GPA is determined by dividing the total credit-weighted Grade Point Value by the total number of credits.
i.e. GPA = ∑ Gi Ci / ∑ Ci
Where, Gi = grade point of the ith course
Ci = number of units of the ith course
