Kenya seeks to be globally competitive and prosperous with high quality of life by the year 2030. To achieve this noble vision, Kenya needs highly skilled manpower in the area of engineering and technology. It is therefore necessary that institutions of higher learning produce graduates that can promote the development and application of engineering technologies.
Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is one of the institutions that is mandated to produce the human resource in the area of engineering. In line with this mandate the mission of the University is to offer accessible quality training, research and innovation in order to produce leaders in the fields of agriculture, engineering, technology, enterprise development, built environment, health sciences and other applied sciences to suit the needs of a dynamic world.
To enable the university execute its mandate effectively, the University has restructured the Engineering Faculty and converted it into a College. More restructuring will involve the construction of state of the art workshops and technologies for training in the area of engineering. This will be complimented by the establishment of an industrial and technology park. This development will greatly boost the capacity of the University to produce highly skilled manpower to support the attainment of vision 2030.
