The Bachelor of Science degree program in Telecommunication and Information Engineering is designed to produce a graduate engineer who has knowledge in the core areas of Telecommunication and Information Engineering. To make the course more encompassing the students are trained to become knowledgeable in humanities and other professional courses. Furthermore, to fit into the competitive and very challenging real world, the graduates are also trained on entrepreneurship, accounting, management and project management.
The programme has several clusters, namely; foundation courses, core engineering courses, core areas of specialization, professional courses and humanities. The weighting and mode of teaching of the units in these clusters are in line with the expectations of professional bodies like Kenya Engineers Registration Board and will in no doubt make our graduates very competitive anywhere in the world.
