To be internationally recognized Centre of Excellence in Science disciplines.
To be the leading Science based center for Capacity Building, National Development and Wealth Creation through training of highly skilled manpower in Science based disciplines, research, and consultancy and extension services
The School of Biological and Physical Sciences was founded in 2011 as one of the Schools of Moi University. Following the elevation of Chepkoilel Campus to the status of a University College, there was need to establish a science school at the main campus that would offer science programmes at the same time servicing the other schools that offer science courses.
The school offers a myriad of programmes and flexibility in course selection to cater to your various interests, aspirations and talents. We are going to provide you with useful information on the types of courses available, exciting special programmes and relevant resources to help you make an informed decision. The School has six departments, namely: Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Statistics & Computer Science and Zoology. Six undergraduate academic programmes are offered namely; Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science (AS), Bachelor of Science in Applied Statistics with Computing (AST), Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (CS) and Bachelor of Science in Microbiology. All our degree programs have Integrated Privately Sponsored Student Programs (PSSP) with the Government Sponsored Students (GSSP).
This gives consistency in student evaluation and offers equal opportunities in the training process for all the students in our School hence ensuring high quality of training. The School programs consist of coursework, laboratories, projects, field attachments and industrial visits. The School is in the process of equipping its laboratories.
