Thika TTI department of Electrical Engineering

It covers a wide range of sub-fields including electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, and signal processing. In electronic engineering, we deal with non-linear and active electrical components such as electron tubes, and semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, are utilized to design electronic circuits, devices and systems, typically also including passive electrical components and based on printed circuit boards. 

The department has adequate facilities and resources that enable our students to get hands-on experience and ready for the market. Our labs and workshops are fully furnished with a variety of necessary equipment and machinery. This enables our students develop the needed skills and expertise earliest and quickly enabling them to fit well in the working environment. This contributes much to exposing our students to real work scenarios and environments.

The department offers short courses which are hands-on oriented skills.

The courses are modular oriented and the examining bodies for modular and short courses are KNEC and NITA respectively.

The department exposes the students to the growing labor market and gives then a sharper edge in the same. Our curriculum also includes a one-term attachment in the industrial field to ensure the students are fully exposed and this attachment is assessed by the teaching staff from the department.
