# Kiriri Womens University of Science and Technology (Kiriri)

# Bachelor of Science Mathematics

- Bachelors Degree Program
- Duration : 4years

## Course Overview

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).

## Course Objectives

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.
