JKUAT was started in 1981 as a middle level technical college through bilateral technical cooperation between the government of Kenya and the Government of Japan. It became a constituent college in 1988 before assuming autonomy through an Act of Parliament in 1994. To respond to the new aspirations of the Universities Act 2012, the JKUAT was chartered by former President Kibaki, early 2013.
Department of Food Science and Technology was one of the early departments started in those formative year and we are therefore so proud to be an integral part of JKUAT’s success. This year, JKUAT is commemorating the 20th anniversary. The University has lined up several activities including public lectures, and open day.
