Research and Technology Development

Throughout its existence, the erstwhile Kenya Polytechnic was known for the very practical nature of her graduates. The Kenya Polytechnic graduate was considered to be well prepared for the world of work and seemed to fit in quite well with the demands of industry right from the time of graduation. TU-K intends to continue building upon this legacy and to produce even much better prepared graduates to meet the challenges of an industry that is getting ever more sophisticated. To this extent it is intended to constantly put to the test, the institution’s slogan: “Education and training for the real world”. TU-K intends to realise this in its curriculum through innovation and dedicated practical training in collaboration with industry.
