PROF. (ENG.) SIMIYU SITATI
Dean, School of Engineering
The School of Engineering was started as one of the pioneer faculties of Moi University. The change of name from Faculty of Technology to School of Engineering (SoE) was a result of the general restructuring of the University and in line with the new strategic plan.
The School of Engineering is one of the oldest schools in Moi University and was formed in 1986 and now has five academic departments. All engineering courses offered at Moi University are recognized in Kenya and internationally and are therefore registered by Engineering Board of Kenya (EBK).
The vision of the School of Engineering is “to be recognized internationally as a center of excellence in Engineering and Technology”.
The mission of the School of Engineering is “to endeavour to build engineering capacity for national development and wealth creation through training of highly skilled manpower in engineering, research, consultancy and extension services”.
Undergraduate Degree Programmes
There are Six (6) Undergraduate Degree Programmes in the school leading to the award of Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.) in the following disciplines:
- Chemical and Processing Engineering.
- Civil and Structural Engineering.
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering
- Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering.
- Mechanical and Production Engineering
- Manufacturing, Industrial and Textile Engineering.
NB: All our programmes are accredited and registered by Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK)
Postgraduate Degree Programmes
- Master of Science (MSc.) in:
- Structural Engineering.
- Water Engineering.
- Chemical Engineering.
- Textile Engineering.
- Industrial Engineering.
- Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) in:
- Energy Studies (with options in energy and environment, energy management and renewable energy resource).
- Production Engineering (with options in applied mechanics, manufacturing technology, machine design and materials engineering).
- Doctor of Philosophy (D.Phil) in:
- D.Phil. in Energy Studies.
The undergraduate programmes run for five (5) years, Masters programmes run for two (2) years and Doctorate programmes run for three (3) years respectively.
For the undergraduate programmes both government and privately sponsored students are integrated. All programmes have compulsory practical work which consists of six (6) months of supervised and examined industrial attachment and three months workshop practice. These activities contribute a lot in preparing our graduates to fit in a real working environment.
Apart from the training programmes, the School is involved in research, consultancy and extension works. These activities are carried out at the university and/or in collaboration with other organizations and institutions nationally and internationally.
The School has well trained academic and support staff which makes it possible to carry out its activities more effectively and efficiently. At least 50% of the academic staff either have Ph.Ds or are working towards their Ph.Ds. The School is committed to continous professional and academic training of its staff to cope up with the dynamic engineering skills and education for development.
The School plans to develop post graduate programmes in all areas of specialization in engineering and have a stabilized student population with adequate training facilities and staff. We are also planning to expand our research and consultancy activities which will involve all the academic staff and students.
Through the dedication of School staff and students we have well organized and coordinated School activities. The School is always ready to offer its best to the students joining our programmes. We also look forward to good working partnership and productive work with the Industry, organisations and other institutions in research, consultancy and extension services in providing engineering solutions to the community and the world at large.
