Competitive Programmes as part of Vision 2030

The School is committed to offering competitive market-driven courses to ensure employability of our graduates. Approximately 90% of our graduates have already secured jobs, with a very good number of them gaining promotions shortly after starting work. Most of our graduates secure these jobs before they finish their degree programmes, during their internship periods. As part of its strategic development plan, the School of SSET has embraced the Government of Kenya’s long-term national development vision known as the Vision 2030 as its main focus. As we all know, Science and Technology, specifically ICT, has been identified as a key pillar that will help achieve the Vision 2030 and in so doing help make Kenya a thriving middle class economy and greatly lift the living standards of Kenyans.
