Bachelor of science Mathematics and Computer Science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology(JKUAT) is designed to equip students with the mathematical tools needed to understand modern areas of computer science such as algorithms, graphics, robotics and computer vision. It also emphasizes the architecture of both the hardware and software, converting a typical Computer from a box of electronics into a sophisticated information processing tool. 

This program at JKUAT focuses on the ways in which computer hardware and software are constructed, and provide an insight into the purpose of each of the major computing systems.

Bachelor of Science Mathematics and Computer Science - objectives

The Bachelor of Science Mathematics and Computer Science degree program at Jomo Kenyatta University is designed to give a student a strong background in the fundamentals of mathematics and computer science. The Educational Objectives of the B.Sc degree program in Mathematics and Computer Science are:

  • To educate and train students in the fundamentals of computer science and mathematics, in order to analyze and solve computing problems, as demonstrated by their professional accomplishments in industry, government and graduate programs and measured within three to five years after graduation.
  • To educate students with an understanding of real-world computing needs, as demonstrated by their ability to address technical issues involving computing problems encountered in industry, government and graduate programs and measured within three to five years after graduation.
  • To train students to work effectively, professionally and ethically in computing-related professions, as demonstrated by their communications, teamwork and leadership skills in industry, government and graduate programs and measured within three to five years after graduation.

Bachelor of science Mathematics and Computer Science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology(JKUAT) is a programme that not only helps students to be resourceful in technology but also in the field of maths as one may be interested in both therefore  Bachelor of science Mathematics and Computer Science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology(JKUAT) offers both.
