School of Mathematics (SoM)


The School of Mathematics (SoM) is a professional academic School of the University of Juba. It was established on the 9th of August 2019 when the University Council approved the establishment of the School of Mathematics. This was an upgrading of the Department of Mathematics at the School of Applied and Industrial Sciences to a full School. The School of Mathematics now provides undergraduate and graduate programs in the fields of Mathematics, Statistics, and Actuarial Science. It is also providing an improvement in the teaching of Mathematical Sciences Degree programs at the University of Juba, and producing undergraduates/graduates who are equipped with analytical skills and tools for solving problems in the fields of engineering, life sciences, physical sciences, economics, and social sciences.

Solving mathematical problems, albeit not straightforward, trains in the useful attributes of rational and lateral thinking. The school provides theoretical and applied mathematical, statistical, probabilistic, and financial approaches to real-life problems. Students have a great opportunity to develop confidence and skills in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical statistics, statistics, applied statistics, operation research, financial mathematics, and actuarial science.

The courses in mathematical science are delightful and intriguing in their own right and are designed in such a way that students learn various modeling techniques and methodologies used in solving real-life problems. The programs are flexible to accommodate different fields of interest. One of the interesting approaches introduced in the teaching of mathematical sciences is the use of computing techniques in the entire subjects to be taught at the school. 

We all agree and acknowledge that mathematical sciences are critical ingredients for the development of social and scientific disciplines. It is, therefore, necessary to continuously produce a stream of graduates with strong mathematical foundations and problem-solving skills for the challenges in the research domain as well as in industry in this country and globally. With the advances in technology, the nature of research and business is becoming increasingly complex and quantitative. Good backgrounds in mathematics are essential for taking full advantage of these developments in technology.
