It is my great pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you to the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology, Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
For generations, university has been considered a wonderful place to be. Students have several options, and there are many good reasons for one to identify the best university in terms of what’s best for them. Mbarara University at the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAST) pledges it’s commitment to making your learning experience a lifelong one as a foundation to your Applied Sciences and Technology career.
Throughout history, scientists and engineers have provided the knowledge and impetus to formulate, design, construct , and maintain the public infrastructure, natural resources, telecommunication, power production, transportation, manufacturing, sanitation, health, and utility systems. These systems form the foundation of credible, sustainable economic growth and prosperity. It is with this historical perspective and the guiding principles of training, effective engineers that suitable curriculum will be developed.
Engineering is about design, making things happen and solving problems. It calls for creativity, management and communication skills, as well as technical expertise and knowledge. Though the field of Engineering is vital to a country's development, the discipline cannot stand on its own. Other fields including development studies, business, management, computer science, health, medical science, language, communication science, mathematics and general physical science help to broaden it’s scope and enhance it 's effectiveness. For this reason the curriculum and training at M.U.S.T. in the AS&T Faculty must be inter-disciplinary in nature.
