Energy Engineering


Energy Technology Department was established to address energy and environmental issues through training and research. The department focuses on training and research in energy resources, generation, utilization and conversion technologies . We recognize that energy is a dominant development component for any nation or community. For this reason, we appreciate the urgency of developing new energy technologies as well as using the existing resources more efficiently and in a sustainable manner.

Kenya’s vision 2030 places energy among the six main pillars of development. This has resulted to more effort and support from the government and other institutions, which Kenyatta University is part of, to explore and exploit more energy resources, both conventional and renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, bio-energy, geothermal energy, wind energy, hydropower, coal, natural gas and petroleum. With continued increase in the demand and cost of energy in Kenya and around the world, there is now an urgent demand for a well trained workforce to develop, process, utilize and manage conventional, unconventional and renewable energy sources in an environmentally safe and economically feasible way.

Our Energy Technology programmes are designed to develop graduates who will address the national as a well as the global challenges in the energy sector. Graduates from the program will be involved in a wide range of careers that may include: finding the most efficient and sustainable ways to operate buildings and manufacturing processes, energy analysis and auditing, development of renewable energy system and technologies, managing the integration of renewable energy generation into existing power systems, energy systems installation and commissioning, project management, energy consultancy, formulation of future energy policies, among others.
