This was a huge jump from position 35 (out of more than 50 departments in the university) in the first quarter ranking.
The results were released on Friday, 13th July 2012 by the Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga in a short ceremony held at the University New Boardroom. In attendance were Prof. R. Odhiambo, Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic Affairs, Prof. Mwita, Chairman University Website Committee, Mr. M Mbugua, Registrar Administration Planning and Development, Dr. H. Ndiritu, Chairman Mechanical Engineering Department, Mr. B. Kosgey and Mr. Matunda, representing the Mechanical Department website team.

The Department has given the mandate of refurbishing the site to a team led by Mr. Kosgey and includes Mr. A. Gitahi, Ms. Doreen, Dr. Kiplimo, Mr. Niva and Dr. Ndiritu.
