About the Department

Mathematics can be described as a science that studies quantitative relationships and space formations in the world we live in. The basic concepts of mathematics needed for describing natural processes are premised on the concept of a number and that of a function. Over many years mathematics has evolved and split mainly into two identifiable areas of pure mathematics and applied mathematics. The department specializes in both areas and hence its name is derived from this understanding. Today, mathematics is used as a useful tool in many fields throughout the world which include engineering, natural sciences, medicine and social sciences. The department endeavours to train students in mathematics and its applications.

The department offers a variety of courses in pure and applied mathematics that run concurrently with other courses either in physics or chemistry or statistics to form learning programmes. The department also offers post graduate training in pure and applied mathematics at Honours, Masters and PhD levels, and service mathematics to other schools of the university. The research interests for the staff and post graduate students in the department are in the areas of number theory, algebra, graph theory, fluid mechanics, differential equations, financial mathematics and epidemiological modeling.

Mandate

  1. The Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics has been entrusted with the crucial task of training students from disadvantaged communities in mathematics and its applications.
  2. The Department endeavours to initiate and pursue research activities of national and international significance.
  3. The Department endeavours to initiate and participate in interdisciplinary research in identified niche areas for enrichment of postgraduate training.

Vision

To strive to contribute to the scientific, technological and social upliftment of the communities that the university serves.

Mission

The Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics commits itself to participate in the university’s learning and teaching programmes through rendering the following services:

  • relevant mathematics programmes that conform with its vision in line with the vision of the university
  • enabling, and caring learning and teaching environment to students from diverse backgrounds
  • development of a culture that cultivates and promotes intellectual curiosity and a diversity of ideas
  • mathematical based research and knowledge development guided by quality and vigour
  • community development programmes

The following are the modules offered by the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics:
# Service modules to our school and other schools, for example, School of
Agriculture, Rural Development and Forestry, School of Business, Economics and
Administrative Sciences, School of Health Sciences and School of Environmental
Sciences;

# Mathematics and Applied Mathematics main stream modules, leading to a BSc
degree with

  1. Mathematics as a major taken with Applied Mathematics or Physics or Computer Science or Statistics or Chemistry
  2. Financial Mathematics as a major taken with Statistics

# Modules leading to higher qualifications.

Higher Degrees (Honours, Masters and Doctoral)

1. Honours Programme

Entry Requirements

A BSc degree with mathematics or applied mathematics as one of the majors or an equivalent degree obtained elsewhere.

In order to be awarded the BSc Honours degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics, a candidate must have passed six prescribed modules and MAT 5701.

Students are advised to seek for guidance from the head of the department in the matters concerning the programmes to be followed and prerequisites, other than just a BSc degree with mathematics or applied mathematics as a major, for certain modules. For example a student who wishes to follow the Applied Mathematics programme would require certain modules, like MAT 3647, which are electives in some undergraduate programmes.
