DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING
It comprises Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Architectural, civil, Telecommunication, Automotive Engineering, Water Engineering, among others.
Objectives
To provide excellent education in the field of engineering both at Higher Diploma, Diploma and Certificate levels as examined by the KNEC. The department places the maximum emphasis on lab work and project work backed by industrial visits designed to help develop concepts of theory taught in the courses.
We have a highly qualified, capable and devoted lecturers and lab engineers as recommended by the Curriculum developers. Facilities, (including audio visual aids and massive parallel processing research laboratories equipped with the latest technology) give students a creative and stimulating learning environment.

Electrical Engineering (Dip/Cert) (power, electronics and Telecommunication options)
The programme is based on a solid foundation in Mathematics, Physical Sciences and Computer programming to ensure the successful completion of the course and to equip the students with future professional skills, rational reasoning and analytical skills. The programme provides a broad engineering core competence which enables students to communicate & interact effectively with engineers in different specialist areas and to make technical decisions with confidence. On successful completion the student will possess the ability to perform integrated problem solving, problem identification, analysis, hypothesis testing, solution verification and implementation.

Career Prospects
Electrical engineers are in demand with employers both in Kenya and overseas. Within Electrical Engineering the main employment areas include electrical power generation, supply and distribution, power systems, the installation and design of electrical machinery and mobile communication companies
Mechanical Engineering (Dip/Cert)
The programme offers a diverse range of challenges and opportunities which recognize the requirements of the 21st Century. The department is committed to preparing graduates who can work cooperatively and professionally with other scientists and engineers to develop innovative solutions to complex problems in the field of engineering.
Mechanical Engineering course will provide a sound foundation in science, computational skills and mathematics to solve engineering problems in areas such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, applied mechanics, design, manufacturing systems, engineering management and economics. The curriculum includes analytical tools, creative thought, communication skills and their application in engineering for lifelong learning and a successful career in solving the engineering problems of the real world. Experienced and subject specialist staff provides quality educational materials and prepare the student toachieve the following objectives in the Mechanical Engineering Programme.
1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
2. An ability to design and conduct experiments well as to analyze and interpret data.
3. An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
4. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.

6. An ability to communicate effectively and an understanding of engineering solutions in a global and social context.

Aeronautical Engineering (Diploma)
Aeronautical Engineering is a branch of engineering which has two disciplines Airframes & Engines option is concerned with the design, production, and maintenance of aircraft. Avionics option is the electronic systems used on aircraft, artificial satellites and space craft which also include communications, navigation and the display and management of multiple systems fitted to aircraft to perform various functions. Aeronautical Engineers can work in airline companies and airports.

Air Conditioning And Refrigeration ACR (Dip/Cert)
ACR technician installs, maintains and repairs heating, air conditioning and refrigeration. Someone who works in this occupation may specialize in installation or in maintenance and repair and in either heating, air conditioning or refrigeration work.
Telecommunications Eng (HND/Dip/Cert)
Telecommunication engineering is a discipline that brings together electrical engineering with computer science to enhance telecommunication systems. The field ranges from basic circuit design to strategic mass development. A telecommunication engineer is responsible for designing and overseeing the installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities, such as complex electronic switching systems, copper wire telephone facilities, and fiber optics. Telecommunication engineering also overlaps heavily with broadcast engineering.

Petroleum GeoScience (Dip/Cert)
Petroleum geology is the study of origin, occurrence, movement, accumulation, and exploration of hydrocarbon fuels. It refers to the specific set of geological disciplines that are applied to the search for hydrocarbons (oil exploration).
Automobile engineering (Dip/Cert)
Automobile engineering is the one of the stream of mechanical engineering. It deals with the various types of automobiles, their mechanism of transmission systems and its applications. Automobiles are the different types of vehicles used for transportation of passengers, goods, etc. Basically all the types of vehicles works on the principle of internal combustion processes or sometimes the engines are called as internal combustion engines. Different types of fuels are burnt inside the cylinder at higher temperature to get the transmission motion in the vehicles. Most of the automobiles are internal combustion engines vehicles only. Therefore, every mechanical and automobile engineer should have the knowledge of automobile engineering its mechanism and its various applications.

Fire Safety Technology (IFE– Dip/Cert)
We offer Fire Safety Technology educational programme that defines the required knowledge for a professional fire safety engineer and human behaviour during fires and evacuation and towards methods for risk assessment. Fire Safety Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that requires a deep understanding of building design and construction, the thermochemical processes associated to fire growth, human behaviour and the representation of the many uncertainties through risk assessments. A Fire Safety engineer fulfils a broad range of duties, all related to fire safety. This can range from designing fire protection for a space station, to ensuring that the occupants of buildings are safe from fire.
