Best engineering courses in Kenya: Are you looking to pursue a course in engineering in Kenya? We have you sorted. below is a list of courses you can go for:

BY CAREER POINT KENYA

1. Aeronautical engineering

Aeronautical engineering degrees at the undergraduate level usually takes 5 years.

To qualify for this career, you’ll need to be highly competent in mathematics and physics in order to apply.

And, if your degree is taught in English and you are an international student, you may need to prove your proficiency through a standardized exam such as the GCSE or take an English language course prior to commencing your degree in order to obtain a student visa or entry into the program.

2. Civil Engineering  

Why complete a graduate-level degree in civil engineering? Well for one thing, research suggests that those with higher levels of education in the field get engineering jobs faster and earn more than those with just a bachelor’s degree. This makes sense.

Those with a master’s or PhD will have higher levels of specialization and expertise which may also mean more interesting, challenging and stimulating roles to choose from. Pursuing higher levels of degree often also means progress towards national accreditation from EBK.

To be admitted here, undergraduate degree in civil engineering is an obvious starting point. Candidates are required to have A’s with high cut aggregate points to study the course. Most graduate-level courses in the field will also consider applicants from related subject areas and even subjects that may not seem to be so close.

3. Computer Engineering

Are you interested in pursuing a career in computer engineering?

This engineering profession is offered in many universities in Kenya.  For example, at Technical University of Kenya, the basic admission requirement is at least an average grade of C+ in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

In addition, applicants are expected to have obtained at least a grade C+ in each of the cluster subjects in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

4. Structural engineering/ architecture

These two courses go together and are regarded as some of the best courses in the engineering sectors to pursue.

With real estate growing at a high rate, the demand for architects and structural engineers continues to rise.

5.  Software engineering/web design

The growth of the internet, social media and mobile applications has created opportunities for software engineers and web designers.

Web designers have a chance to create and manage websites for major companies making this one of the courses that you should consider pursuing.

Software engineers are hired by companies to come up with new applications and software’s to keep them on top.

Companies like Safaricom, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and many more are always looking for software developers to keep them ahead of their competitors. Some software engineers earn more than 250K.

6. Electrical Engineering

Electrical power and systems are at the heart of modern society – and so too are electrical and electronics engineers. Engineers specializing in these fields have transformed the 21st century with technologies such as universal electric power systems, television, radio and medical imaging to name just a few.

Electrical engineering degrees will equip students with knowledge of how the industry works, as well as giving them the engineering skills and technological knowledge needed to design, assess and improve electrical and electronic systems.

If you’re interested in how electrical devices work, are inquisitive, and have a strong interest in mathematics and science, then you probably already have some essential engineering skills and an electrical or electronics engineering degree may well be for you. Excellence in mathematics and science are the main subjects required for this program.

Accredited Engineering courses in Kenya list is endless! But whether you pick one of the above or not, remember that you have all it takes to get your dream job, sustain it and grow your career. Make sure the engineering program is accredited by EBK before you pick it.

Always remember that your personality will make you either fail or succeed depending on how you carry yourself in the job market.
