Faculty of Science

Introduction

The role of science and technology in the development of any country cannot be emphasized enough. The Faculty of Science was established in the 2003/2004 Academic Year with the aim of meeting the ever-growing challenges of development in African Countries, which have yearned for different cadres of Scientists who can contribute to the development of their continent.

The department has continued to promote her agenda of training health professional who need to be concerned beyond technology but with the communities’ increasing poverty situation, escalating health care costs, diminishing access of care, increasing gender workload imbalances. inadequate food availability, increasing violence and insecurity. The impact of these trends hit the poorest and marginalized disproportionately, in a context which is increasingly globalizing as their situations go through the experience of massive traumatic transition. These has been achieved through practical training of our graduate in community service practice and field attachment component in various institutions.

About the dean

Welcome to the faculty of Science at the catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA).

Today, the Faculty boasts of five departments: Mathematics and Actuarial Science, Community Health and Development, Computer and Information Science, and Natural Sciences. The faculty offers over 20 programmes ranging from certificate courses to PhD programmes. It is worth noting that CUEA is the only private university that offers a PhD in Mathematics in Kenya.

The faculty has over 50 members of faculty on full time basis making students have an easy time accessing them and getting the help they need. The faculty has also produced impressive academic publications that contribute towards making CUEA maintain its good rankings as a research and academic Institution including Webometrics.

The Faculty is in collaboration with IBM Research Africa and Huawei to offer state of the art Computer Science training that is globally respected. The IBM Research Africa facility in Kenya is housed at CUEA making it ideal for our students to access expertise that may not be found anywhere else in this part of the world. CUEA is shortly expected to be a Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy which means the university will be certified and authorized by Huawei to deliver official technical and certification training to its students using the Huawei authorized training curriculum and tools. These collaborations ensure that our graduates receive cutting edge training and have an upper hand in the job market.

The Faculty of Science is among the centres of excellence in science training in this region and our promise is to keep ensuring that the graduates remain relevant in the global market.

  4. Mutambi Songa presented two papers; Modeling and Predicting of Solar Forcing of Total Column Ozone over Kenya Using Regression and Artificial Neural Networks and Statistical Study of Solar Forcing of Total Column Ozone Variation Over Three Cities in Kenya at the 2017 Joint IAPSO-IAMAS-IAGA Assembly (Session JA4 – Solar Related Variability of the Atmosphere domain) which at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town, South Africa.
  5. Dr. Rossa Nyoike attended a Regional Workshop on Widening Informed Stakeholder Engagement for REDD+ (WISE REDD+) that was held in Mombasa, Kenya between 11th and 13th August 2014.

The faculty is committed to community service in and outside the campus. Faculty community service activities are in line with the vision and mission of the University. Apart from material support, the faculty envisage the service-learning model of serving the community. The faculty has identified educational institutions such as Light Academy in Rongai and is collaborating with them in the provision of learning materials and other support services.

The uniqueness of the programme

New and robust models are needed to change the trends of development. For the needed paradigm shift a new cadre of personnel are required, trained in the practice of public health not only by academicians but also by professional practitioners as well as stakeholders. The new approach heavily relies on skills and cannot be adequately developed among learners in the classroom. A practical hands-on approach is vital, which makes our programme unique. Needless to stress that health improvement demands the inputs of variety disciplines. As such we have established MOUs with such institutions as well as public sector i.e. Kajiado County – Ministry of Health, Langata Sub-County, Kuwinda Village, Good Samaritan Rehabilitation Centre. The Bachelors Programme has been reviewed by the CUE and comments given, the document has been updated so far, only site inspection for approval of the same
