On behalf of the Faculty of Science, let me take this opportunity to welcome you all to Kibabii University. I wish to salute all stakeholders including parents and guardians who have accorded our students and staff requisite support and care that has enabled us to reach this level of academic achievement. “Karibu Sana!”

The Faculty of Science is at the forefront towards the realization of the University vision: To be a global and dynamic University of excellence in Science, Technology and Innovation. We are guided by principles of sustainability, equity, fairness, innovation and community service in our day to day practices. The faculty has been on the forefront in addressing global challenges through scientific research and community service with an interdisciplinary perspective.

Research culture is evident. Mathematicians have participated in mathematical modeling of the climate system, non-communicable and communicable deceases including covid-19 prevalence; biological research in cancer, covid-19 virology and dynamics of climate change is ongoing; agricultural research to respond to global food insecurity and sustainable pests management including desert locusts is among the active research areas. The physics and chemistry of the atmosphere group is involved in scientific investigation of physical processes of the planet. The faculty has engaged its staff and students in community based resilience building activities including manufacturing and distribution of sanitizers to the local community free of charge among many other initiatives.

Currently, the Faculty has departments of Mathematics; Science, Technology and Engineering (STE); Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES) and Agriculture & Veterinary Sciences (AVS). These departments coordinate programmes in mathematics, physics, Renewable Energy, chemistry, biological and environmental and agricultural sciences. These strong academic entities are supported by a qualified faculty staff that will guide you to realize your goals in your selected area of study. The faculty has supported the establishment of school of nursing that is about to start offering degrees in Nursing.
