A meeting between the Dean School of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Materials Engineering and class representatives for the various courses in the school was held on 7th March, 2016. The purpose of the meeting was to get feedback from students on issues pertaining to learning and also to sensitize students on issues such as examination regulations and fee policy among others. Certificates were also issued to the students to appreciate them for the commendable job they are doing as class representatives.
During his speech, the Dean SoMMME, Prof. Nyakoe reminded students to ensure that they attended classes especially for basic sciences such as Mathematics and Physics in which performance was observed to be dwindling in the recent years. He also asked students to desist from unwanted practices such as exam cheating. The Dean asked students to remain focused, mentor other students and be good ambassadors of the School. He finished by urging the students to feel free and give feedback on issues pertaining to their academics.
During the meeting, the school administrator took students through the examinations regulations and asked the class representatives to sensitize their fellow students on the same. Speaking, Ms. Lilian also advised students to always ensure that they sign the nominal roll at the Dean’s office by paying 50% of the tuition fees plus 100% of other applicable charges by the end of the 4th week of every semester and clear the remaining fee by the 8th week as per the new fees policy.
The COD, Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Hiram Ndiritu, reminded the students to ensure that they register for units at the beginning of each Semester since this is requirement for all students. Students were also reminded to report any challenges they are facing to the Dean or to their respective chairmen. The meeting was also attended by the COD, Marine Engineering and Maritime Operations Dr. Robert Kiplimo and the COD, Mechatronic Engineering Ms. Grace Wairimu.
