Diploma in Food Science & Technology

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 Chemistry, Biology, 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.

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