COD's Message

Welcome to the department of Mathematics, Computing and Information Technology at the University of Embu. We are at the heart of this great Institution with a fast growing community of about 200 students in two programmes: Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Bachelor of Science in Statistics. The department is committed to giving our students, not only excellent teaching services but also exposure to scientific thinking and innovation that will form a firm foundation to their lifelong learning.
Our graduates will fit in the industry in multiple and diverse sectors where statistical, computing and Information technology application is needed. The current programmes will also form a firm foundation for advanced levels in research as well as in praxis. Being application oriented courses; we strive to incorporate practical sessions and multiple teaching case studies in the learning. The University has also invested heavily in modern infrastructures such as Computer Laboratories, High Speed Internet connectivity, electronic and multimedia equipment such as overhead projectors among others. These are all commendable efforts to support teaching and learning.
As part of this young university, the department will strive to: establish collaborations both locally and internationally; develop new demand-driven, inter disciplinary and integrated new academic programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; carry out research and community service to achieve impacts from the departmental services.
It is my hope that the disciplines of mathematics and computing, being core parts of innovations and entrepreneurship will position the university in new ways and participate in the national dialogues around the themes of Kenya being a globally competitive and Prosperous Nation with a High Quality of life by 2030

Welcome to the departmental website and feel free to leave us a comment, we appreciate your feedback.
