Staff and Students farewell for the Vice Chancellor


Prof. Ndirangu Kioni served as the first Vice Chancellor of Dedan Kimathi University of Technology from December 14th 2012, since his appointment after we were awarded the Charter. Under his tenure, the University has grown in infrastructure, programmes, student population,science, technology, engineering and mathematics programmes (STEM), entrepreneurial and innovative initiatives, and human resources development in the ten years’ period.


His leadership and hard work has been exemplary. In under ten years, the University has risen from a new University to a renowned University in the country and in the region.


In this period, the University was awarded an accreditation certificate by the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) for approval of its engineering courses at the University grounds. This was after the board finally accredited its four engineering programmes making it the forth University in Kenya to offer engineering courses recognized by the board.


To remain competitive DeKUT, has so far developed a total of 61 programmes; 54 of which are fully accredited by the Commission of University Education Accreditation. By 2012, DeKUT had 21 accredited programmes on offer. Notably, over 70% of the programmes on offer are in STEM. DeKUT is strategically placed globally and contributes to the AU Agenda 2063 on research and innovation. For this reason, it attracts postgraduate students from the East African Community.The first group of CBC students is expected to join Universities in 2028. DeKUT will have restructured the academic programmes in readiness for the cohort.
