It is situated on the precincts of the former Moi Institute of Technology, (MIT), which began in 1981 as a technical training college for Certificate, Diploma and Higher National Diploma programmes

Innovative Programmes

The Degree and Diploma programmes that are on offer are strongly anchored on practical orientation through more contact hours of class work, field work and industrial attachment which is expected to give the students a more holistic understanding of the environment in which they operate. In so doing, Rongo University College aims at producing students that are capable of self-employment and job creation rather than relying on formal employment only. In addition, they will fit well in the job market and environment as graduates who are responsive to societal needs. This is in line with the Kenya Vision 2030 which emphasizes job creation and industrial growth through exploitation of national skills and human resources.

Degree Programmes

The University has two types of modules for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The full time students are taught during the day from Monday to Friday. There is also a flexible schedule for those who are working during the day to be taught on weekends. The School-based programme is designed for teachers and is conducted from mid-November, December, April and August when schools are closed. This includes Diploma, Degree and Masters programmes. There are also plans to introduce open and distance learning programmes to cater for those who are in far flung areas in the rest of the country.

TIVET Programmes
