Message from BOG Chairman.

Mr.

Passion: To promote access and quality TVET training for Kenyan population and especially the marginalized. Coast Institute of Technology has positioned itself to realize the n attainment of vision 2030. The college is impacting positively in quality education. Way back in 1981 it was purposely created as a fully-fledged government-owned technical institution to meet the demand of quality education and training in Technical, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training (TVET). Given that it is situated in the main tourist circuit in the country, the institute picked up well with courses in Hospitality, Tourism and Business Studies among others. Our academic performance over years has been excellent leading to annual increase in enrollment. Our graduants have not disappointed either in the industry with some vetted with standing ovation in tourism industry,banking sector, human resource just to name a few. With our modern conference and restaurant facility we are privileged to host seminars and workshops in the coastal region for county governments, institutions and organized groups to a capacity of 300 participants. We also actively participate in corporate social responsibility. Our practices are anchored in the international standards and thus we are ISO 9001:2015 certified. Finally, we consistently implement our activities through an elaborate strategic plan. This has enabled us to attain milestones as we move to the next level.

 

 

historyCoast Institute of Technology is situated in Tsavo area 2km away from Voi Town in Taita Taveta County and in proximity to nature, a quiet environment and expansive compound.

The history of Coast Institute of Technology dates back to 1981 when a group of ten visionary leaders from Taita raised funds to purchase a 42 Acre piece of prime land from African Tourism Development Company Limited for the purpose of starting an institute of technology. It is established in a dynamic education zone in Voi in the coastal mainland, a historic area where the oldest missionary church in Kenya was first built. It is also known to have the first airstrip built in early 1900 in Maktau and used during the second world war in the fight between German and British troops. Situated in the Semi-arid region (ASAL area), the institution has transformed through intensive beautification programme and is attractively nestled in a greeny tree compound in the neighbourhood of Tsavo East National Park.The college has two campuses: Main Campus (which offers regular programmes and holiday classes) and Town Campus (which offers part-time programmes either as evening classes or Saturday classes).
The campus offers both residential and off campus training. The college offers market driven Diplomas, Craft Certificates, Artisan Certificates and Short courses in both Business and Technical programs. The Institute has 100 competent lecturers to deliver quality and effective teaching. The Institute runs income generating activities to supplement its main source. We engage in Corporate Social Responsibility programs and so far we have undertaken a number of courses that benefit the community. Finally, our Women in Technical Education (WITED) has made us proud in championing for girl rights and access to education. WITED champions organize celebration for the International Day for the girl that attracts participants from all levels of education in the County.
