Plans to have Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology accredited by the Engineering Board of Kenya are at an advanced stage.
The university’s director of public communications Bob Ombori said Vice Chancellor Fred Otieno has made all the necessary arrangements to register engineering programmes. He said.
“For more than 10 years, the university was unable to register engineering programmes with the board,”
Ombori spoke to the press at the university on Monday. He said the university has received new engineering, biological sciences and physics equipment.
“Our students will not be going to other universities for practical lessons as used to be the case,”
Ombori said. The mechanical engineering tuition block was constructed at a cost of Sh 65,689,920 million. Ombori said the university’s School of Medicine will be launched in September.
