Message from the Dean

The School of Engineering and Built Environment at MMUST was established in July 2008 as Faculty of Engineering, after splitting from the Faculty of Science and Engineering. This was necessitated by the unique challenges encountered in the Engineering profession such as statutory requirements and expectations of the stakeholders (students, sponsors and industries).

The School objective is to produce engineers that meet the expectations of the labour market. Therefore the programmes offered have to be recognized by regulatory and professional bodies. As the only engineering School in the Western Kenya region, it is to be a centre of excellence in applied research and consultancy, and play a leading role in TVET programmes


Scope of the School

The School supports students in gaining an in-depth understanding of basic engineering, broadening their perspectives, and developing their creativity, humanity and practicality, so they will become key players in industrial circles and international arenas.

The school's industry consultants specialise in the design and production of customised training courses, training manuals, skills audits, workplace assessments and occupational health and safety training.

Training courses for engineering options are regularly updated to meet the changing needs of technology and production methods in Kenya and abroad.

The School dates back to 2002. Since then, it has extended in size and scope to meet the increasing need of engineers to keep pace with the growth of Kenyan economy. The Faculty is now composed of three departments covering a wide range of engineering sciences.

Our undergraduate students gain hands-on experience in our laboratories, industry placements and final year projects. We have laboratories/workshops in areas such as:-

Concrete Technology

Soils and Highways




Mechanics of Machines

Material Testing

Power systems


Electronic controls

Micro-processors and micro wave
