Considerate scientific research as a cornerstone for sustainable African socio-economic development

While conducting scientific research on a continent as diverse as Africa, working with an inclusive sample is imperative. Africa is arguably the most diverse continent in the world, due to its differences in ethnicity, gender, age, beliefs, etc. The Washington Post also concluded that the world’s 20 most diverse countries are all African.  This diversity affects the outcomes of scientific research in one way or another.  […]

What you can do with a Master’s in Mathematical Sciences

Africa has the youngest population in the world, with a big percentage of them pursuing higher education. However, choosing a Master’s degree to pursue can be difficult, especially when one plans to have a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Due to the many options that make deciding on one specific degree tedious, understanding the skills which are offered by the degree is a big factor while choosing a degree effectively. This concern motivated us to inform people in STEM fields about what a Master’s […]
