MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Brief History

Since its inception in June 2011, postgraduate studies have been at the heart of University of Embu (UoEm). The Board of Postgraduate Studies (BPS) is anchored in the UoEm Statutes. The founding Director, Prof Nancy Budambula, was appointed in July 2014 and the Board became operational in September 2014. The first postgraduate students graduated in September 2016.
At the beginning of 2018, UoEm had more than 140 master’s students and 90 PhD students distributed in the following Schools:
1.    School of Agriculture
2.    School of Pure and Applied Sciences
3.    School of Education & Social Sciences
4.    School of Business & Economics
Over the last few years, UoEm has been able to attract highly qualified staff with experience in teaching, supervising and mentoring postgraduate students.  The staff have demonstrated excellence in research and publication in high impact journals in the fields of Agriculture, Natural Sciences, Business and Education. Well-equipped teaching and research laboratories have been established to support postgraduate research. The university has modern microbiology and molecular biology research laboratories among others. A research farm also exists to support agricultural and associated applied biology programs.

Organization of Postgraduate Studies at UoEm

The University Board of Postgraduate Studies (BPS) oversees postgraduate studies at UoEm. Postgraduate matters are first considered at the departmental then the school and finally at the university level. The Department is therefore the first point of contact between a student and the University. Teaching and research by postgraduate students is coordinated by the respective departments. For more details on a specific program, kindly contact the Chairman of the relevant department.  Research profiles of members of staff are on the departmental web pages.  Answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on postgraduate studies are provided on this website.
