About Us

General Information

The department of Engineering Workshops is under the College of Engineering and Technology (COETEC).  It started operations as a fully-fledged department in 1995 and was mandated to, among others;

  1. Provide shop-related instructions to students and departments.
  2. Provide facilities that students can use to design and fabricate their projects.
  3. Engage in research and innovative projects to meet the needs of a people.

It also supports Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology’s (JKUAT’s) Mission of improving human life and society in general through industry.

We are channeling our creative thinking to the production of innovative solutions to meet the challenges that we believe are critical for the future as we carefully nurture tomorrow’s experts.

Engineering Workshops are located at the main campus of JKUAT along Innovation Street, and provides services to all the departments within CoETec.  There are a number of well-serviced machines and equipment available for use by students and staff for academic and research purposes.
