Kenya Accredited Engineering Programs by Engineers Board of Kenya

The Engineers Board of Kenya is a statutory body established under Section 3(1) of the Engineers Act 2011. One of the core functions of the Board provided in Section (1) (L) of the Engineers Act 2011 is to “approve and accredit engineering programs in public and private universities and other tertiary level educational institutions offering education in engineering.”
Over the last one year, the Board has met all the Vice Chancellors and the management of Public Universities offering engineering programs in Kenya, together with the relevant stakeholders and it has generally been agreed that:-

  1. The universities should adhere to the guidelines used for the purpose of approval and accreditation of engineering Programs.
  2. Universities should not admit new students to unaccredited programs

iii. The Board will expedite the accreditation process once the institutions comply.
The following therefore is an update of the status of accreditation of engineering programs:
