ACADEMIC GROWTH OF OUR STUDENTS
All training programs in the department are geared towards preparing the learner or trainee in academic advancement. A successful student at any level in this department is able to move to the next training level. A student who has successfully passed the artisan level is able to join the craft certificate level at module 2 and a successful student at craft certificate level is able to join diploma training at module 2. We hope to have many of our successful diploma students advancing in their academic endeavors in our Universities.
As stated earlier, life without electricity is not life anymore. Every aspect of human activities now involve the use of electricity and the application of electricity must have an electrician or electrical engineer. The manufacturing and entertainment industries in the world over need electrical engineers, technologists and electricians to enable work to be done. In our country, Kenya, the booming Agriculture sector, fishing industries, the transport sector and even the education sector require electrical engineering experts either to work on electrical machineries or impart electrical knowledge in future electrical workers.
