Message from the dean School of Engineering & Technology

On behalf of all our staff and students in the School of Engineering and Technology (FoET) at the Technical University of Mombasa(TUM) I am pleased to welcome you to our web page.

The School of Engineering and Technology currently offers a wide range of academic programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. To educate students with the ability of applying theory to practice, research and disseminate knowledge, the curricula are designed based on a foundation of integrated, systematic engineering knowledge. These programmes are designed to enable students develop core competencies, acquire problem-solving skills, and prepare for graduate school and professionalism. The School also offers a wide range of certificates and diplomas as a means of providing access to knowledge in the areas of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). The approach we take on training and learning include curriculum designed while promoting best practices. Our graduates are equipped with strong analytical capabilities, the latest in cutting-edge technologies, and the skills for innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.

The School of Engineering and Technology offers Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Technology undergraduate programmes in Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Medical Engineering. It also offers Bachelor of Architectural Studies/Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Technology in Marine Engineering. These vibrant programmes have contributed powerfully to students’ success. For instance, two of our 4 Th year Civil Engineering students were selected to represent Africa at the Falling Walls Conference in Berlin, Germany after winning the Energy Management Award with their Poseidon Pump System innovation. At the graduate level, FoET offers two programmes; Master of Technology in Mechatronic Engineering and Master of Technology in Sustainable Energy Engineering.

All these programmes are organized across five academic departments:

  1. Architecture and Built Environment
  2. Building and Civil Engineering
  3. Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  4. Mechanical and Automotive Engineering
  5. Medical Engineering.

Bachelor of Science Programmes in Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK).

To further learn about the undergraduate and graduate degrees offered in the School we invite you to explore the web pages of the departments to get additional information on our programmes, curricula, admission requirements and courses offered, and discover more about our School, staff and students.  I also encourage you to visit campus and learn first-hand the many advantages of a School of Engineering and Technology education.
