About Bachelor of Science Mathematics Bachelors Degree program.

Mathematics is recognized as an indispensable tool in
advanced study and application in various scientific and
technological disciplines. Certain specializations such as
statistics and actuarial Sciences experience dire shortages
due to lack of qualified mathematicians. There are
virtually no women in these specializations in Kenya.

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree programme at
KWUST aims at encouraging women to take up careers n this
field. Recognizing the importance of information technology
in modern society the programme also includes significant
coverage of basic courses in computer and information
technology. Other specializations include the traditional
branches of mathematics (Pure and Applied).

Objectives of Bachelor of Science Mathematics

At the successful completion of the Bachelor of Science Mathematics course,
a student should be able to:
i) Demonstrate understanding of the theoretical conceptsin mathematics, recognise their historical
background and where applicable, apply them to real life.
ii) Demonstrate logical thinkingand to communicate their thoughts satisfactorily
using mathematical language.
iii) Demonstrate proper synthesis of information and to express the same in mathematical language.
iv) Demonstrate high level of pproficiency in quantitative and computing skills sufficient to meet various demands
of the society upon a modern woman.
v) To operate with excellence in professions that require mathematics for example
in banking, insurance,demography,tecnology,biometrics,bio-statistics,quality control,
engineering and business management.

Entry requirements for Bachelor of Science Mathematics
