The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) was established at MMUST in June 2004. The purpose of its establishment was to create a center that would coordinate all graduate programmes, research and extension services.
The School co-ordinates all Graduate Programmes, services at the University. Teaching is however carried out in the various academic Departments, Faculties and Centres. It is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the graduate programmes are initiated and maintained; that qualified students are attracted into these programmes; that quality research at the graduate and post-doctoral levels is maintained and that research findings are disseminated to the beneficiaries both locally and internationally.
At the School it is held that knowledge is vital for development and life sustenance and the best source of relevant knowledge and technological advancement is research.
The School of Graduate Studies, at MMUST will endeavor to develop into a reputable center for training and research that will be able to effectively promote capacity building, influence positive research culture to ensure production and dissemination of relevant scientific and technological knowledge that will promote development and improve human life.
To realize its vision the School will initiate and coordinate several graduate programmes including tailor-made courses for training manpower in both basic and applied sciences
