The department of Biomechanical and Environmental Engineering has adopted an outreach program to inform secondary school students on Engineering Courses offered within the department as well as in the College of Engineering. BEED has been able to sensitize secondary students in different parts of country, including those in the Rift Valley, Nyanza, Western and Coast Provinces.
Many students do not have full knowledge of courses they are selecting before joining the universities. The BEED team was able to give various presentations on engineering courses and others being offered within the entire university.
This sensitization aims at making students aware of what opportunities are available for them , especially in JKUAT. With the current employments rates being limited, innovation is one key aspect necessary for graduates, as well as venturing into self employment, and students are encouraged to be more innovative.
