The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is one of the four departments under the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology. The department has always maintained an old philosophy that “If you can’t count or measure it, you can’t manage it” therefore our activities affect all policies, and touch all aspects of people’s lives.
