The Staff in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Sciences (STACS) of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, warmly welcomes you to our website, We encourage you to visit all our sites and links so as to learn everything about us.
Department of Statistics and Actuarial Sciences (STACS) belongs to the school of Mathematical Sciences chaired by Dr. Jotham Akanga under the college of Pure and Applied Sciences which is headed by Prof David Mulati
The Department of Statistics and Actuarial Sciences (STACS) offers training at the undergraduate
and postgraduate levels. Its expertise covers a broad spectrum of fields ranging from
the traditional areas of Mathematical Statistics, such as Inference Theory, Survey Theory
Experimental Designs to applied Statistics areas such as Econometric s, Financial Risk
Management, and even Modeling Extreme Events
Our Courses include four undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Statistics, Bachelor
of Science in Bio-statistics, Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Sciences and Bachelor of
Science in Financial Engineering.
Undergraduate students may during their training, chose more courses from related progam-
mes to boost their knowledge base as they desire.However, it is worth noting that our courses are
flexible and allows students to design their own programs in conjunction with their course
advisers. Our entire courses have a lot of Computer training integrated in them, a point that
enables all interests in Mathematical Sciences to be nurtured properly.
At the graduate level, the Department offers the PhD in Mathematics, which culminates in the
exposition of original research in a dissertation. Graduate students also receive training and gain
experience in the teaching of mathematics.
