Engineers Board says TU-K on the right track to accreditation
The Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) has lauded TU-K for the right steps the institution was taking towards full accreditation of her engineering courses.
In a recent visit, the Board commended the University for striving to adhere to rules and regulations set by the engineers’ regulator.
The team headed by the Chairman, Eng. D. M Wanjau, held consultations with the University management, the academic staff and students. The team, which also visited the university workshops and laboratories, said they were impressed with the new equipment the institution had acquired to boost the training of students.
The Board asked the university to acquire more digital equipment saying this will boost training and enhance program delivery. They also asked academic staff to register with professional bodies.
Eng. Wanjau said he was impressed with the university library saying though small it had a huge repository of e-books which enables students and other library users to access scholarly materials, journals and publications with ease.
Vice-Chancellor Prof. Francis Aduol thanked the EBK Board for the visit and assured them of the University’s commitment to working together to fulfill the regulator’s requirements.
“I have listened to your comments and I have taken them as an exam. I will also transfer them to my people. I would also like you to pay more attention to us, and even after this, come and see if we are doing the correct thing,” the VC said.
He said the University was committed to producing highly qualified professionals who would go out and serve the country diligently.
