Our vision is to be a school of excellence in information technology and engineering. The release of our 2014 graduands is a big step towards achieving this vision. Other indicators that clearly show that we are on our way to becoming a center of excellence include improved infrastructure, new and revised curriculums, as well as groundbreaking research by the staff.

From an infrastructural perspective, the school has registered tremendous growth, including:

  • Increasing the number of departments for efficient delivery of services to our customers. For instance, the school initially had two departments: communication and information technology (CIT), and engineering. The CIT department has since been split into three departments: information technology, computer science, and communication and education studies.
  • Construction of an engineering complex and several separate engineering workshops is coming to a close soon. The complex will house staff offices, lecture rooms and provide computer and engineering laboratories.
  • New engineering equipment is expected soon. We are expecting to receive engineering equipment sourced by the African Development Bank (ADB) at a cost of about K.Shs.200 million. The first consignment of electrical equipment is expected before the commencement of next semester while equipments for mechanical and civil engineering are expected later. In June 2014, Elettronica Veneta, the Italian company supplying the electrical equipment, hosted our DVC (ARS), Dean SITE, and a technical member of staff for one week. The aim of the visit was to familiarize with the electrical equipment’s production process and installation of the same before shipping is done. Photos of some of the equipment taken from the production plant as well as photos of the packaged ready-for-shipment equipment are shown below.

Our academic staffs are actively engaged in various research activities as evidenced by the various papers that they publish on a regular basis in refereed journals and conferences. They collaborate with researchers from other Kenyan Universities as well as from universities outside Kenya. Some selected papers that they have published in recent months include:
