Let’s get started
Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology (KWUST) is a private, women’s only Kenyan university. As a women’s only university, our main objective is to bridge the gap in gender representation in higher education as well as contributing to the social and economic development of the country. The university was founded in 2002 and is accredited by The Commission for University Education (CUE).
Information Communication Technology (ICT) Infrastructure for Offering Blended Learning
Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology has implemented a university-wide infrastructure for net-based learning and blended learning. This strategic investment aims to increase the opportunities for students and lecturers who wish to use digital educational resources in teaching and learning. In a long-term perspective it is expected to lead to skilled and dedicated students, a stimulating working and learning environment, increased access to new educational tools and also to contribute to the University’s objective of bridging the gap in gender representation in higher education as well as contributing to the social and economic development of the country.
Virtual Learning Platform
The university has adopted a virtual leaning platform (http://virtual.kwust.ac.ke/). This learning management system providers users with access to digital classes. These virtual courses are similar to offline classes in a lot of ways: an instructor provides an engaging educational experience through multimedia messages. The system is based on Moodle. Moodle is a learning system that is designed to offer educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create customized learning environments.
Online Examination Platform
This is a Moodle new integration with the open source lock-down browser safe exam browser that enables lecturers to easily set up a controlled environment for students to take quizzes, preventing students from accessing external websites or other applications while on the assessment.
KWUST has embraced video conferencing tools such as Zoom, Google Meet, Hangouts and Class. Plans are underway to integrate it with the University Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) once an assessment is completed.
We hold the view that Science and Technology is an indispensable tool in harnessing resources of nature for sustainable development and creating an environment in which human beings can survive and realise their potential; the human person has the moral obligation to creatively improve the environment. The philosophy of KWUST is to lead to the development of human capital through scientific search based on Christian principles. This is achieved through an educational, scientific and technological approach through which every human being must rightfully experience and acquire the tools to actualise this philosophy.
The philosophy of KWUST is to lead to the development of human capital through scientific search based on Christian principles. This can be achieved through a well-conceptualised educational, scientific and technological package through which every human being must rightfully experience and acquire the tools to actualise this philosophy.
We pride ourselves in having committed teaching and support staff who are always at hand to support the students in academic, personal and pastoral matters.
Trimster based academic calender
We have three academic intakes in a year; January, April and September. This means that a student can choose to take an accelerated course path to complete her studies.
Our diploma students transit to our degree courses. Degree students from other institutions can transfer their units to KWUST to complete their degree programme with us.
We are passionate about empowering the girl child. Our scholarship programme ensures that no student misses out on an opportunity to pursue higher education on account on financial challenges. The application process for scholarships is open to all our students.

Our fee structure is competitive. We offer flexible payment terms to the parents and guardians of the students. In addition, students from our institution are eligible to apply for loans through the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB).
