Faculty of Science

Dr. Damian Kajunguri
Faculty Dean

View Profile

The Faculty of Science at Kabale University came into being after the university was awarded the charter as a public university in 2015. Prior to this, the subjects that currently comprise the faculty were taught under the Faculty of Education.

The faculty consists of the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, Biological Sciences, and Chemistry. The Faculty currently has 23 full-time academic members. Through teaching and research, the staff of these departments have made professional and scientific contributions to the public, local, district, national, and international science and technology communities. There are over 400 students registered for courses offered in the Faculty. This includes students who major is Education but to whom the departments in the faculty offer subject-specific teaching and tutoring. Graduates have a variety of job opportunities especially in the public and private educational sectors, in governmental and non-governmental institutions and in some cases, may continue to post-graduate study. Research in the Faculty is primarily individual and aimed at obtaining higher qualifications for the majority of the staff members. As a result, such research tends to be spread across all fields the departments represented.

Mission
To provide an accessible and supportive environment for teaching, learning, research, and community engagement in the sciences.

Vision
The first choice for students seeking access to quality education in the basic and applied sciences in the Great Lakes Region and beyond.
