Electrical and electronics engineering is one of the most popular courses in Kenya. The course can be pursued at the certificate or degree level. The degree course takes four years to complete.

The electrical and electronics engineering course is available at various TVET institutions. This program offers career opportunities in telecommunication, power generation, and industrial machine control.

Machakos University

Machakos University is a public higher education institution located in the small city of Machakos in Kenya. The university offers bachelor’s degrees in a wide range of subjects. The school is accredited by the National Commission for University Education, and its degree programs are recognized worldwide. The university is also a member of the International Association of Universities.

The university’s electrical and electronics engineering program is one of its most popular offerings. The program provides a solid foundation in the basics of electricity and electronics, and students can take it either as a degree or a diploma course. The degree program lasts four or five years, while the diploma course lasts for six semesters.

The university has come under fire in recent months for using a student’s image without her consent. The girl, Catherine Njeri, sued the university for violating her rights to privacy and human dignity. The court ordered the university to pay her a total of Sh700,000 for the violation.

This program trains graduates to work safely, accurately and efficiently in a variety of electrical engineering fields. The first three years of the degree course provide a broad foundation in basic theory and hands-on experience. During the final year, graduates can choose to specialise in either light current or heavy current options.

Microelectronics is a rapidly growing area of the electronics industry, and graduates of this program will be able to use their knowledge to design and troubleshoot advanced electronic devices. This will make them highly employable, and they will be able to work on many different types of products. They can also help with the development of new technologies, and they will be able to understand the workings of various systems.


MMUST’s electrical and electronics engineering programs are designed to prepare students for careers in a wide range of industries. The school’s faculty is made up of expert teachers with “real world” experience in the field. Students also receive support in the form of tutoring and mentoring. In addition, the university keeps class sizes small to allow students to get to know each other and to build friendships with their classmates.

During the electrical and electronic engineering program, students learn to design digital circuits and analog integrated circuits. They also study the principles of power systems, including alternating current and direct current. Students also learn how to develop and use microprocessors in the laboratory.

MMUST is proud to offer a new undergraduate degree in biosafety and security in collaboration with the International Federation of Biosafety Associations (IFBA). The BSc. in biosafety and security will serve youth interested in pursuing a career in the field of biosafety around the world.

Strathmore University

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Strathmore University is one of the most popular programs in Kenya. It offers both certificate and degree courses and trains electrical power engineers for socio-economic development. The program has received significant technical support from the Kenyan and Dutch governments in terms of refurbishment of workshops and the provision of large quantities of modern equipment. The department has also offered evening courses for students working for Kenya Power since 2007 with great success.

The program is designed to leverage the university’s reputation for academic excellence and all round education to produce highly qualified and ethical electrical engineers for Kenya, Africa, and the world. Graduates will have a strong background in theory and hands-on practical training, and they will be able to work in various industries including energy, telecommunications, medical electronics, and industrial automation. They will also have the opportunity to benefit from the LIWA (Linking Industry with Academia) program, which links them with leading international companies.
