Word from the Dean – Dr. Dionysious Kihika Kiambi
Welcome to the Graduate School!
Graduate School facilitates and coordinates Postgraduate Studies in order to enhance the quality of all the post-graduate programs offered at the University (MA, PhD). The School ensures quality control in all stages of postgraduate studies through streamlining and benchmarking relevant policies as well as establishing research timelines and rhythms starting from concepts to final submission of Theses and Dissertations.
An important element of quality control is the establishment of a network of highly qualified Dissertation and Theses supervisors and external examiners recruited from like-minded institutions in both Universities and industry. The School has recently adopted the Integrated Online Graduate Monitoring System (i-OGMS) as an online platform that allows for real-time interaction between supervisors and students. Through the system, the School monitors interactions between student and supervisors and is therefore able to provide the necessary support as well remedial measures that may be necessary.
The Graduate School works closely with the Centre for Research, Innovations and Publications to build the capacity of postgraduate students through organization of research seminars and training workshops. These collaborative efforts have extended to providing opportunities for students to disseminate research results through the PAC University Research Conference. The Inaugural Research Conference was held recently as the first of such conferences to be held annually. The Graduate School is now working closely with Heads of Departments to institutionalize postgraduate seminars at the departmental level.
The Graduate School is working closely with the other three Schools towards realization of the common vision of making PAC University a world class University through production of high quality Theses/Dissertations as well as highly competent graduands that are responsive to market needs and national development agenda. The School will continue raising the bar of Postgraduate Scholarship and Academic Excellence as envisioned in the University's mission under the leadership of Dr. Dionysious Kiambi (Dean).
