In line with the University Motto of Education for the Real world, the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and Technology focuses on training Engineers, Technologists, Technicians and Artisans for the Industry. The faculty currently hosts over 5000 students studying various Engineering and related disciplines namely; Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, and Aeronautical Engineering, Geospacial Sciences, Architecture and the built environment. As much as possible, the programmes are linked with industry at every level so as to ensure that students get well grounded in industrial practice. This also gives the industry an opportunity to interact with the young minds for professional mentoring’
Over the years, the Faculty has continuously sourced for state of the art equipment and lab procedures so as to ensure that students are able to adequately link theory to practice even as they progress through the academic semesters. The School of Mechanical and Process Engineering has well equipped Mechanical Engineering workshops with state of the art CNC machines besides other equipment for routine laboratory work. The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is also well equipped in the areas of solar power, telecommunications, robotics and general electronics. In anticipation of increased student numbers, the University has embarked on a grand plan to further recruit qualified staff, modernize and expand lecture/lab space for all the engineering disciplines in addition to establishing collaborations with industry leaders such as Toyota Kenya, Samsung, Safaricom and Kenya Airways. As a benchmarking strategy, the Faculty is also fostering collaborations with local and external institutions of higher learning.
