The Department of Mathematics started as a Unit in the Department of Physical Sciences, which was made up of Mathematics and Physics to service the other Departments in the University in 1994/95. In 1994/1995, the Statistics and Computer Science Programmes were introduced and joined to the Department of Physical Sciences, all of them running the same programme. Later, each arm was allowed to run a separate Programme in its area but still under the umbrella of Department of Physical Sciences. In 2004, the Department of Physics was demerged and formed a separate department of Physics whose Programme was accredited in 2005. Department of Mathematics had interim accreditation. This led to formation of the Department of Mathematics/Statistics/Computer Science.
The Mathematics Programme was accredited in February, 2005 even though it was still under the umbrella of the Department of Maths/Stats/Comp. The first sets of graduates of the Mathematics programme were produced in 2000/2001. Since then, the Department has graduated more students each year. In 2011/2012 the Department of Mathematics was created.
The vision and mission of the department are derived from the overall vision and mission of the university.
Mathematics is a pivotal subject for science and technological development and consequently constitutes the springboard for numerate and computational competencies that enhance relevance in global scientific interaction. The Mathematics Programme is therefore designed to develop students’ competence in the necessary mathematical skill with a view to preparing them for academic career in research institutes, public services, private sector of the economy, and for future academic career anywhere in the world.
