Programme Overview

Mathematics is an important tool for communication and other operations not only in science but also in day to day activities.  Mathematics also provides intrigues and mysteries in its various patterns, structures and theorems.  Mathematics is a beauty in itself and can be captivating and addicting if it is properly grasped.  At the Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology, the courses in Mathematics department have been designed not only to give the student necessary skills to perform operations in various professional fields but also to create the desire and interest to further explore mathematics.
