Head of Department

Introduction:

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science enjoyed the historical privilege of being the one of the foundation Department of the Federal University of Kashere established in August 2012 with two programmes (B.Sc. Computer Science and B. Sc. Mathematics) under the leadership of Mr. Yusuf Simon Enoch as the Ag. Head of Department. The programmes took up with seven (7) permanent academic staff (3 in Mathematics and 4 in Computer Science) and twenty four (24) students (7 in Mathematics and 17 in Computer Science) in 2011/2012 Academic Session. Today the Department has a total number of two hundred and ninety six (296) students as per 2017/2018 Academic Session. Also since then, staff were added to improve the staff strength and quality of the programmes. At the moment the Department has a total

number of thirty eight (38) academic staff (14-on study fellowship and 25 on ground) excluding visiting lectures, four (4) administrative staff and two (2) laboratory staff.  Dr. P. B. Zirra took over as the Head of Department from November, 2014 to August, 2018. Currently, Dr. (Mrs.) Asabe Ibrahim is the Head of Department from 1st September, 2018 to date.

Vision:

B Sc. Computer Science Programme

To reinforce, extend, and diversify our strengths in interdisciplinary innovation and collaboration while striving to become recognized for addressing critical, scientifically important problems through education and research in Computer Science.

B Sc. Mathematics Programme

The Department of Mathematics aspires to be globally recognized as a centre of excellence for interdisciplinary research and teaching. The Programme will promote a comprehensive, innovative and dynamic learning environment that meets the changing needs of student population.

Mission:

B Sc. Computer Science Programme

The Computer Science Programme of Mathematics and Computer Science Department strives for excellence in creating, applying and imparting knowledge in Computer Science and Engineering through comprehensive educational programs, research in collaboration with industry and government, dissemination through scholarly publications, and service to professional societies, the communities and the world at large.

B Sc. Mathematics Programme

The Programme mission is to provide students with rigorous training that enables them to develop reasoning and analytical skills and pursue graduate degrees for service to the communities and the world at large.

Mission:

B Sc. Computer Science Programme

The aim of this programme is to produce highly quality Computer Science graduates with the range of knowledge and skills to be able to impact positively and provide solutions to problems in various fields of Human endeavour locally and internationally. The specification objectives are:

  1. To provide a broad and balanced foundation in Computer Science knowledge and practical skills.
  2. To prepare students for further graduate studies in the field of Computer Science.
  3. To reinforce, extend, and diversify students’ strengths in interdisciplinary innovation and collaboration.
  4. To produce graduates with the ability and expertise to conduct and lead research in all aspect of Computer Science which will be in turn beneficial to the economic, social and scientific needs of people
  5. To provide quality undergraduate and graduate education in both the theoretical and practical aspect of Engineering, Electronics, Information theory, Logic, human behaviour and train students to effectively apply this education to solve real-world problems thus amplifying their potential for lifelong high-quality careers.
  6. To develop and offer dynamic programs in Computer Science that will prepare students to be self-reliant and job creators.
  7. To produce Computer Science graduates that will compete favourably with their contemporaries in the labour market and the worlds at large.

B Sc. Mathematics Programme

The aim of this programme is to produce graduates with the abilities of tackling mathematical and computational problems of the society and the world community at large, through the acquisition of the solid foundation knowledge of the mathematical sciences.

The objectives are:

  1. To develop in the students the enabling capacity to develop mathematical models to solutions to various scientific and socioeconomic problems.
  2. To produce mathematics graduates that will compete favourably with their contemporaries in the labour market in Nigeria and the world at large.
  3. To widen the knowledge base and enhance the capacity of students to address the general mathematical problems of the pure and applied sciences.
  4. To prepare students intellectually to pursue postgraduate research studies in all areas of mathematics and related fields.
  5. To produce graduate that are self-reliant and job creators.
