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 adequacy and relevance of these programs.

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

Upon graduation, students finishing these programs will have acquired an education that satisfies the academic requirement for registration as qualified engineers.

It is worth noting that the Board only accredits engineering programs and not departments or faculties.
