Academic paradigm of the School of Sciences, Engineering and Technology (SSET)

The science department responds to the needs of students for both general and specialized education in science offering the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts degrees in biology, chemistry, mathematics and Physics. The Bachelor of Science degree permits a heavy emphasis on selected subject matter and closely allied fields whereas the Bachelor of Arts in science is designed for the student who desires a more broadly based education while still specializing in one of the sciences. The Engineering Departments strive to educate and train engineers who have the breadth of vision to formulate and solve problems of today and the future. It is expected that a student who conscientiously applies himself/herself and successfully completes an engineering program will be technically trained and socially educated, thereby being well prepared to make a significant contribution to the world in which he/she works.

The School of Science, Engineering and Technology (SSET) of the Saint Monica University Higher Institute, Buea is authorized to offer training in several engineering programs at the levels of the Higher National Diploma (HND), Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng), and Master of Engineering (M.Eng). The B.Eng and M.Eng degree programs are mentored by the University of Douala (UD) through the Higher Technical Teachers Training College (HTTTC) or ENSET by its French acronym. The academic programs in agriculture are being prepared for mentorship by UD. The following table provides details about the academic programs and degrees in SSET.
