- About Us
- Graduate Programs
The Department of Mathematics at Egerton University, Njoro Campus, is composed of three main branches of Mathematics namely: Applied Maths, Pure Maths and Statistics. The department has over 23 academic staff, One secretary, Three Clerical staff, Four Ph.D research students and eleven M.Sc. students. The department is one of the busiest departments in the University, teaching over 4,000 undergraduate students in a year and graduating not less than 3 postgraduate students per year!Mathematics is a living and growing subject in which new results are continually being discovered, theorems proved, examples constructed and whole new theories developed. Even in the "purest" areas of Mathematics, the most vital research topics are often those that stem from real-life scientific problems. We also solve real problems using mathematical techniques.
Conversely, it frequently happens that progress in Mathematics research, even when undertaken without regard to possible applications, eventually turns out to have relevance to other parts of science. Students who have enjoyed and excelled in Mathematics at the undergraduate level will find an additional excitement on reaching the frontiers of the subject and becoming involved with areas of current research.
The department has a three part mission of providing training at all levels, carrying out both basic and applied research and providing services and consultations to other teaching and research departments within the University as well as to any other member of the society. It is hoped that by the end of the course a student (Majoring in Mathematics) should be able to:
- Doctor of Philosophy in Statistics
- Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Mathematics
- Doctor of Philosophy in Pure Mathematics
- Master of Science in Mathematics
- Master of Science in Statistics
- Master of Science in Applied Mathematics

- Certificate in Bridging Course in Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics at Njoro Campus has launched a certificate course in Bridging Mathematics. This programme was developed to respond to the need of giving students who performed poorly in Mathematics at KSCE level an opportunity to further their studies. Therefore this programme is meant for all candidates wishing to pursue any of the following programmes at Egerton University.
(i) Diploma: Those with a KCSE mean grade of C or above and less than C in Mathematics.
(ii) Self Sponsored Degree Programmes:
Those with a KCSE mean grade of C+ or above and less than C+ in Mathematics.
Each year, the Department has runs of 3 successful Bridging programmes with over 100 students in each session at Njoro, Nakuru Town and City campuses.
