Message from the chairman

I am delighted to invite you to this website of the department of Physics, Jomo Kenyatta University and Technology (JKUAT). As you explore this site, you will find a wealth of information: who we are, what research we do, what academic programs we offer, information on current staff and students, scheduled/upcoming seminars and workshops, and much more.

A special welcome to prospective students of all kinds: high school students, undergraduates thinking about pursuing Physics and related fields, and graduate students. By exploring the site, you can learn about the vast range of research in our department, learn about current research groups, undergraduate and postgraduate academic programs. If you have a question related to academic programmes, the research we conduct, etc., please feel free to contact us.

For the current (in session) students, this site enables you to get some services that are otherwise provided on notice boards or over the counter (at the departmental office). By a click of your mouse, you can view/download teaching and examination timetables, view scheduled seminars/workshops/outreach activities, get more information about your course lecturers, and you can even post questions/complaints/compliments.

By offering market-driven academic courses, our department’s mission is to train highly skilled and competitive scientists in Physics and in interdisciplinary areas. A look at the courses we offer attests to this. Additionally, we have been able to establish linkages with industry mostly through our alumni who are currently working in industry.

Enjoy your visit!
