Board of Postgraduate Studies

The Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) Board of Postgraduate Studies (BPS) is established in the MUST statute. The Board is answerable to the University Senate in respect of the conduct of Postgraduate studies throughout the University and  in particular, has responsibility over the following matters: the co-ordination of postgraduate curricula and regulations, the admission of postgraduate students, the administration of postgraduate scholarships, the administration and processing of postgraduate theses, projects or research papers, the conduct and supervision of the postgraduate studies programmes and the general welfare and discipline of postgraduate students.

The main objective of the Board is to provide guidelines that define the various processes as well as the roles played by each of the stakeholders in the process of managing the postgraduate curricula and the students. The BPS through the Directorate of Postgraduate Studies endeavor to ensure that our graduates are highly trained and competent in their respective disciplines.

The BPS conducts its activities through the office of the Director, Postgraduate Studies to ensure that MUST remain at the forefront in graduate training, research and innovation. The directorate continues to work closely with the Schools and teaching departments to ensure that relevant programmes are rolled out after approval by the University Senate and accreditation by the Commission for University Education (CUE) in Kenya.

Various Postgraduate programmes are offered by the different Schools in the University at the Postgraduate Diploma, Masters as well as Doctoral levels. These are research degrees and for this reason the directorate welcomes partners in Industry to work with the University in conducting research.  Through partnerships we shall ensure that various societal challenges are addressed through conducting relevant postgraduate research. May I invite Bachelor and Master degree graduates to enroll in the various postgraduate programmes offered in our Schools.
