Message From Chairman of the Department

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science at Murang’a University of Technology. The department is housed in the School of Pure, Applied and Health Sciences. The Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science is a community of learners and researchers/ faculty members whose principal goal is to help our students appreciate mathematics as a science and also as a study of humanity. The primary goal of the department is to prepare the students for professional careers in mathematics, statistics and actuarial science. This is achieved through innovative curriculums which provide students with strong foundation for learning life-long and problem-solving skills. The curriculums are designed so as offer a set of courses in mathematics and related fields aimed at developing the students’ intellectual curiosity and a habit of independent study.

Our mission is to provide students with strong understanding of mathematics and related disciplines so that they can apply this knowledge in areas requiring expertise in the fields of mathematics, statistics and actuarial science. I take this opportunity to welcome prospective students and other stakeholders to the Department of Mathematics and Actuarial science. It is my trust that you will enjoy the learning experiences at Murang’a University of Technology.
