About Rongo University
Rongo University Overview
Rongo University College is a public institution which was established
by Excellency President Mwai Kibaki, Commander in Chief of the Kenya
Defense Forces through Legal Notice NO.70, Kenya Gazette Supplement
NO.51, on 17th June 2011.
The University Campus is located on Kitere Hill, 8 kilometers from
Rongo Town, and 2.5 kilometers off Kisii – Migori Highway. 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
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.
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.
(Technical Industrial Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training) Globally,
technical education is acknowledged as a means for transforming and
empowering the youth with skills, knowledge and, attitudes to enable
them become productive members of the society. It is on this basis that
the Government of Kenya has, and continues to support TIVET training and
institutions. Rongo University College will endeavor to develop
practical skills of TIVET programmes by taking a different approach
which emphasizes attachment in training of its graduates as emphasized
by TIVET institutions and the Government.
Affordability & Quality

have presently acquired a new meaning. Being a public university
college and a nonprofit making institution, the focus is on high quality
and affordable service delivery to all Kenyans of all walks of life.
The University College is well equipped with laboratories, centres of
excellence, library, teaching restaurant, and relevant equipment for
effective instruction and training of students.
