Brief History

Prof Anthony Waititu

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.
