Head of Department

 

Welcome to the Applied Sciences Department. The Department is proud of its achievements in the world of Research and Innovations and it has put the Institution in the limelight at various Trade and TVET Fairs. The Department has a team of competent and committed trainers serving within the Department and also servicing in other Academic Departments.  The Students population is above 400 enrolled in different programs.

The Department has 5 well equipped Laboratories serving the different disciplines. We have an Instrumentation Laboratory with state-of-the-art Equipment donated by the Government of Kenya. The Equipment include GCSM, FITR, Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter, Kjeldahl Apparatus, among others. These instruments are not only for training and research but also for the Department’s Production Unit. There is also one Food Science Workshop.

After the completion of their courses the trainees are adequately prepared to provide skilled manpower in the Manufacturing, Analytical and Research Industries.

The programs offered in the Department are:

DIPLOMA IN APPLIED BIOLOGY

The course is designed for KCSE graduates. It aims at equipping the trainees with skills, knowledge and attitudes to be highly competitive in the relevant industries and for further academic progression.

To qualify for admission, the trainee must have passed with a Mean Grade of C-(minus) and above in KCSE and they must have passed in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and English.

This is a modular program that runs for three years in 3 modules. Each module takes three terms. After completion of the second module, the trainees undergo a 3 months Industrial Attachment Session where they apply the skills learnt and experience the real world of work in the relevant Industries. During this period the trainees are assessed by the trainers and the supervisors in the Industries.

The trainees sit for internal examinations at the end of each of the first two terms of a module and at end of the final term (term three) they sit for the Kenya National Examinations Council examinations.

ntakes for the program are at the beginning of every term (January, May and September).
