Message from Charles Koech,Chief Principal/Secretary, Governing Council

This National Polytechnic’s geographical location places it at the core of the country’s agricultural production and we are proud to have been the main supplier of professionals involved in the running of sugar factories in the western Kenya sugar belt, the Kenya Seed Company in Kitale and many others. Our pharmaceutical and medical laboratory technology graduates find a ready job market at the nearby Moi National Teaching and Referral Hospital and other medical facilities in the country.

We have also partnered with various players including the county governments, building and construction companies, Kenya Power, KenGen, Athi River Mining, Mabati Rolling Mills, Lake Victoria North Water Services Board and others to ensure our trainees possess skills relevant to industry. This ensures that their chances of getting employment opportunities as soon as they graduate are greatly enhanced. Our annual placement rate stands at over 85 percent. The European Union and the Africa Development Bank (ADB) have particularly been supportive of our endeavours to become the national polytechnic of choice not just for north rift and western but Kenya as a whole. The ADB financed the construction of the new ultra-modern Building and Civil Engineering workshops, which have already been completed and commissioned. This means the modern equipment for BCE programmes brought in courtesy of World Bank and the Government of Kenya can now be put to use.
