From the looks of things students will have to be more careful while applying for courses in universities. The issue of universities not being accredited by respective boards to teach various courses continues to come up. First, law in Catholic University among others and now engineering at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology.
Engineering graduates from Masinde Muliro University will be forced to take remedial classes because lack knowledge in certain units in the course. Mid last year Engineering Board of Kenya issued a report rejecting the engineering course offered by the school because if failed to fit the board’s requirements to register the course.
The six month course will be offered in Nairobi, Kisumu, Eldoret, Nyeri, Garissa, Kitale and Mombasa where the school’s former students work. They will also cater for long distance learning for students outside the country at what they say is a small fee. After completion of the classes the graduates will be recognized by EBK. Students from up to seven years back are forced to take part in the program.
