Message from the Head of department

Dr. Samuel Njuguna
Head of Department

The department is committed to supporting the mission and vision of Kiriri Womens University with an emphasis on enriching the great minds of the ladies and women pursuing a course in technology. Furthermore, to develop and nurture their leadership qualities as we impart knowledge and refine their skills which are essential in the current job market. This is realised through excellent classroom instruction, mentorship as well as directed guidance and counselling.

In the department, we are currently offering three undergraduate programmes. Students in the Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science acquire fundamental skills that are applicable to organisations in this dynamic market coupled with the technical aspects that support their careers. The Diploma in ICT develops students’ interest in technology and fosters their information in the IT industry as well as giving them the knowledge that they can apply in the industry. The Certificate in ICT is designed for the students seeking to acquire the fundamental IT knowledge and skills that can be useful in jumpstarting their careers in this diverse field.

The pragmatic approach in the department also emphasizes extra-curricular activities and practical-based competencies to position the student for success. Through industrial attachment, mentorship and leadership training, as well as other social networking experiences, students can complement their classroom learning. Thus, the department prepares a holistic and confident entrepreneur ready to apply themselves in the industry.

The faculty consists of both qualified scholars and trained mentors who are committed in helping the student achieve their potential. They are always ready to assist the learners and guide them appropriately. This causal interaction between the learners and knowledgeable staff lays the foundation for their success in their professions and future.

Once again, welcome and envision your success as you pursue your career.
