Dr. Kiptiemoi Korir Kiprono,

Ag Dean School of Science


The School of the  Science is one of four  Schools making up the academic section of the University College. The School offers the following programmes for both undergraduate and postgraduate students: computer science, applied statistics with computing,parasitology, and microbiology.

Our programmes equip students for a wide range of science and non-science careers. During the course of the degree, students develop deep discipline specific knowledge as well as the skills required for graduate level employment. Critical thinking, complex and creative problem solving, active learning, and interpersonal skills are developed through classroom, laboratory, and field experiences with academics who are committed to sharing their experience and passion for science with  students.

Finally, a degree in Science at Alupe University College is no longer a mere education in a discipline but rather  it is a journey that opens opportunities towards national and international leadership in science and technology.
