Basic Science Research

    ii) Biomechanics, Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer

    Modeling of liquid flow through certain specified medium could be used to understand a number of health problems and real life problems, for instance heart mechanism, arteries, veins, and food absorption into blood streams. The research usually involve: (i) modeling flow of a polar fluid through a porous medium, subjected to magnetic field, (ii) heat transfer due to a combined action of radiation, magnetic field with variable suction, (iii) effect of temperature on catalytic reactor with heat source or sink.

    c) Multivariate Analysis and Its Applications :

    Applications to Student Performance at schools: Disparities between boys and girls performance

    In order to provide a solution to any real life problem it is crucial for one to formulate a problem, prepare experimental designs, carry out data collection, analysis and interpretation. Appropriate application of statistical methods to different research data in determining patterns or relationships among variables and ways of interpreting the data is very important. The use of statistical software is essential in research, with most common being SAS, SPSS and Minitab. Particular research problems involve: (i) application of principal component and factor analysis in agriculture and educational research data and (ii) experimental designs.

    d) Applications of Information Technology (e-learning) to Agriculture and Education

    This area of research makes use of information technology to source information or data from available resources in the Internet, such as bioinformatics: - retrieval and analysis of DNA sequences from the DNA bank.
