    Prof. Paul K. Wainaina Vice Chancellor:   Hello, and welcome to Kenyatta University  (KU).       Founded in 1985, Kenyatta University  is  situated in Kahawa, North East of Nairobi, along the Nairobi-Thika Highway. Kenyatta University is the third oldest public university in Kenya. KU's Serene Compound   The institution is deeply committed to upholding the responsibility that comes with its rich history. Being public, KU has always been accessible. Our students who hail from diverse backgrounds both locally and internationally continue to enjoy and be enriched by all that KU offers including a world-class library, well-equipped laboratories, art, sports and the impressive Chandaria Business Innovation and Incubation Centre, where young entrepreneurs with innovative projects are nurtured to scale up their ideas into viable spin-off companies.   Being a dynamic institution, Kenyatta University engages with the community, and is steadily elevating, through research and knowledge application, the quality of lives of people in the society. Kenyatta University is home to some of the world’s best scholars, researchers and experts in their fields. We pride ourselves on providing high quality programmes that attract individuals who wish to acquire skills that the global market needs. What gives the KU graduates an edge with their future employers is a hands-on knowledge in their particular professions. To adequately prepare students for the dynamic labour market, the University has established meaningful links with leading organizations and industrial partners, who guide the University on practical, professional requirements which need to be built into programmes. With the relevant input from stakeholders, the University’s courses are tailored to equip our graduates with leading edge skills for the workplace. Already, many of our graduates are exposed to new employment opportunities by working on 'live' projects during their study, or through course related placements. The relevance of our programmes is maintained through our ongoing relationships with research organizations, banks, industrial partners, local and foreign institutions. Lecture Halls and laboratories With a clear policy on internationalization, the University has put in place various programmes such as the Intra-Africa student exchange initiative through which selected KU students study abroad for a whole semester at the partnering institutions. Students from the same institutions also undertake their studies at KU for a similar period. Through such active links also, staff and students undertake collaborative research and pursue joint programmes. By educating the next generation of thinkers and doers and leveraging staff and researcher expertise, Kenyatta University continues to drive new ideas and innovations necessary for societal development.
