Objectives

 
The main objectives of this curriculum are; to:
(i) Prepare engineers who can accomplish product design, material selection, efficient production planning, evaluation and marketing, in addition to providing needed leadership in the industrial, public or private manufacturing sector of the economy.
(ii) Develop student’s ability to solve problems by analytical methods, work effectively with others, communicate effectively, and make good commercial judgements and decisions.
(iii) Help student develop an understanding of his/her role in society and to be diligent and competent in the performance of his/her professional obligations.
(iv) Enable the graduate of this program to effectively participate and practice in modern manufacturing engineering profession.

B.Sc. in Manufacturing Engineering and Technology

RationaleManufacturing engineering and technology is the application of engineering principles to the art and science of transforming raw materials or parts of saleable goods that meet market demands and specifications. The B.Sc. Degree program in Manufacturing Engineering and Technology is employment, business and society oriented. The program aim to train engineers who are capable of providing independent practice and leadership in manufacturing industries and to enhance the Government‟s strategy of making Kenya industrialized. The program also aims at introducing modern manufacturing technologies while taking into account the conventional manufacturing methods.Graduates of this program can readily be employed in both small and large industrial concerns which include: engineering workshops, processing industries, motor assembly plants, production and packaging firms, and similar organizations.
