The Technical University of Kenya has recalled more than 3,000 engineering students whose studies were suspended in August.

The students were sent home over a row between the university and the Engineering Board of Kenya over accreditation.

Vice-Chancellor Francis Aduol said the university decided to recall the students while it processes the accreditation.

“We want the students to continue with their studies as we seek accreditation. It is not a one-day process. We cannot keep the students out for long,” said Prof Aduol.

He said the university is working with the board to ensure that the programmes are accredited as soon as possible.

First Year students who were supposed to have reported in September will now report on January 4, for semester one.

Students who completed year one studies in April will also report on January 4. The same applies to those who completed their second and third years, respectively.

The students whose studies had been suspended are in the faculty of Engineering Sciences and Technology.
