BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

Course Description

The B.Sc. programme is laid on a foundation of focused training of graduates competent in a broad spectrum of pure and applied sciences with a customer focused training through continuous scientific and technology improvement and creation of a learning environment that motivates and actively involves the learners.

Course objectives
The B.Sc. programme aims at training broad based scientist with specialized areas of expertise who have relevant knowledge needed in many science based applications. The programme offers a wide and deep foundation of theoretical and professional experience in selected sciences. The programme is also geared at building professionals in private and public sector at either academia, research, industrial or related institutions. Besides the core disciplines, the student can select a specialized area of study to enhance skills in the field.
Further, the programme aspires to provide relevant skills and knowledge that meet the individual, professional, institutional, county, national and global educational needs today and in the near future. This will enhance economic development from regional to National level to facilitate achievement a vibrant economy. The programme is also aimed at meeting dynamic world demands for graduates who can address emerging and current issues.
 
Course Structure
The programme is designed such that the students will have the students will start with four specializations straight from the first year of study. These specializations are
•    Mathematics/Chemistry,
•    Mathematics/Physics,
•    Physics/ Chemistry
