List of Accredited Engineering Courses in Kenyan Universities

For a student to be certified as an accredited engineer, he or she must have been enrolled in one of the accredited engineering courses in Kenya for a period of 5 years or more. The Engineers Board of Kenya is the board mandated to accredit engineering degree programs in Kenya, before private and public universities are allowed to offer the programs to students.

Accreditation of engineering programs, being offered in Universities, is the process of assessing the adequacy and relevance of these courses against the available facilities.

Accreditation helps the engineers’ board identify the engineering programmes that meet the criteria for accreditation.

Upon graduating in one of the accredited engineering degrees in Kenya, the graduate can now apply to the EBK for a registration certificate as a qualified engineer.

Take note that you cannot get employed or practice as an engineer in Kenya if you pursue a course that is not accredited by EBK. You will be wasting your fees if you pursue engineering degrees not recognized by EBK in that university.
