Industrial work Experiences/Field practicum is an integrated part of our curriculum. It is required that every student should undergo a minimum of 660 hrs for industrial work as stipulated in the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development(KICD) syllabus and examined by Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC). This has to be done before presentation of the student to final examination. The purpose of this exercise is to try as much as possible to make the training relevant to the job requirements in industry.

Industrial Attachments are an excellent way to help the student learn more about a career, find out what it’s like to work in your potential career, gain valuable experience to build your resume get to know employers and make a solid network receive credit for real world experience.

The ILO (Industrial and Liaisons Office) deals with the placement and assessment of the students in different organizations and companies for their industrial attachment. The student identifies the areas where he/she would like to be attached and gives this information to the office which writes to the organization an introductory letter about the student. The office also helps students who have failed to get an attachment by searching one for such students. NITA helps get attachments.

It is hoped this could be achieved through the following:

  • Exposing students to industrial/Business/Social work culture through actual involvement in real work in real work environment.
  • Providing opportunities to students to apply skills acquired through formed institution in a real work situation.
  • Exposing students to technologies which are not available to them at the institute.
  • Building confidence in Technical operation, problem solving, team work and working with professional in the world of work.
