Dedan Kimathi University of Technology (DeKUT) started as Kimathi Institute of Technology (KIT). From the very beginning, the founders knew that this was going to be the MIT of Africa. We are very close to actualizing this. We recognise that the appropriate weapon to creating a prosperous society is science and technology; transforming Kenya and beyond. This informs our operations and each day we enhance Research, Innovation, Technology Transfer, Entrepreneurship and Quality Education . We train for the industry and for development. That's why we focus on special programmes; mainly Science, Engineering, Technology based and Technical so as to contribute to the attainment of national development goals; vision 2030 and beyond.
