Overview

The School is the largest School with many of its Departments established with the College in 1964. It comprises seven departments, namely: Department of Biology, Department of Chemistry, Department of Computer Science, Department of Integrated Science, Department of Mathematics, Department of Physical and Health Education and Department of Physics.

Students are exposed to the scientific principles and techniques during classroom teaching, practical exercises and field trips as means of demonstrating academic and professional excellence in teaching science.

Many graduates of the School are distinguishing themselves in diverse careers in the society such as teachers, politicians, scholars and information communication experts.  A number of academic staff is occupying relevant Collensis positions of responsibility thereby contributing to the growth and development of the College.  

Philosophy of the School

The philosophy of the School is to:

-         produce competent, professional and effective teachers of science education who will be able to develop in students an appreciation and understanding of Mathematics and Science.

-         impart the intrinsic values as well as the utility values of Mathematics and Science in all spheres of human activities.

-         develop in the students the ability to formulate problems, identify variables and design experiments, interpret results, recognize patterns, generate hypothesis, draw conclusions and develop theoretical models.

-         develop academic and professional competency which will enable individual earn a living.

-         help students become intellectually informed in Mathematical ideas, notations and skills for logical reasoning.

Objective

To realise the stated philosophy above, the School has the following objectives:

(i)        to equip the students to be able to demonstrate practical skills in handling scientific apparatus.

(ii)       to equip the student to be able to demonstrate excellence and professional competence in the teaching of Mathematics and Science subjects.

(iii)     to develop an individual who will make a successful carrier in Mathematics and Science teaching.

Staff and Student Profile

The School has eighty nine (89) academic staff and thirty three (33)  administrative staff. Many of the academic staff holds Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degree in their discipline while the rest are at one level or the other to obtain theirs.The School of Science has the largest student population.
