KAIST will also comprise academic curricula for 6 departments for a start. These departments include:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical/Electronic Engineering
  • ICT Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering and Agricultural Biotechnology.

These could then lay the foundation for engineering research and education in Kenya.

The Kenya Advanced Institute of Science and Technology is set to be an important part of the education fraternity with Technology, Science and Innovation seen as the catalyst for fast-tracking modernization and transformation of Kenyan as an economy and education-wise by 2030.

STEM courses in institutions of higher learning will be advanced at KAIST in a bid to create more specialists in the industrial economy and boost economic growth via the advancement of science and technology.
