Welcome from the Associate Dean of STEM

Welcome to the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at the International University of Grand-Bassam. My colleagues and I are delighted and honored to participate in establishing this unique and much needed educational opportunity in Francophone West Africa.

We congratulate you on your decision to pursue an education in a scientific or technological field. With an increasing demand for skilled STEM graduates in the region, the development of efficient pathways between undergraduate students pursuing STEM degrees and industry has become an urgent need. Our STEM programs are practically oriented and designed to help you make the most of your education – in the classroom, in the laboratory, during your capstone project and through internships.

The School will be seeking Board approval for a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science. These new degree programs will build on our existing strong two-year general education curriculum and junior and senior level courses developed over the past six years in collaboration with Georgia State University (GSU). Our courses are benchmarked against courses at our US partner institutions (GSU), University of Houston (UH), and University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) through an articulation process.

The faculty and staff of STEM look forward to welcoming parents, the business community, the local stakeholders, partners and, most of all, our students as they embark upon the most exciting period of their lives to IUGB. We will do everything we can to make sure that students spend an enjoyable, rewarding and memorable time with us and are ready to lead successful careers!
