The aim of our programs is to develop student’s capacity to face challenges head on and provide solutions in a confident and logical manner. This is done through adoption of best academic and engineering practice to ensure students gain the right skills. Our programs highly emphasizes on imparting skills through practical sessions that take place in laboratories and various workshops. These are backed up by state of art computers, machines and equipment.
Our program consists of core engineering disciplines that expose students to design, materials, thermo-fluids and power engineering. Besides the core engineering subjects our students also undertake interdisciplinary programs such as ICT, communication skills, marketing and research methodology to enable them communicate with engineers and managers in the field.
