Equipment worth Ksh. 30m to benefit engineering students
The MKU School of Engineering, Energy and the Built Environment has acquired state-of-the-art equipment worth Ksh30m through the support of Board of Directors.
The School is upping its effort to provide quality teaching and release well quipped graduates who are ready for challenges of the 21st century and are able to meet the needs of the labour market.
This is according to Dr. Isaac Alukwe, the school’s Dean.
The equipment is currently on high seas and will soon be available to students for training in areas of renewable energy and petroleum engineering.
Dr Alukwe said students will have the opportunity to learn new technologies in design, operation and optimisation of meeting a mix of technologies and integrated schemes using solar, wind, geothermal sources.
This achievement adds to the already ongoing construction of a modern school of engineering, estimated to cost over Ksh1 billion, on 100 acres at Landless Happy Valley in Thika.
The design and masterplan of new school is ready
