It goes without saying that Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is a trendsetter in higher education, research and innovation. It is even more imperative to note that this is not a subjective opinion, but a simple statement of fact. However, there’s much more to JKUAT than just education, research and innovation, which, summed together, makes the institution a University of superlatives. The Discover JKUAT blog is all about telling the story of JKUAT in totality, about giving credible and comprehensive insight into exactly what makes JKUAT tick; how does JKUAT wake up, how does it spend the day and how does it sleep at night. An interesting and compelling answer to these queries are the sole purpose for this blog.
The Discover JKUAT blog is not an initiative that started today or yesterday, or even last year. This was a noble cause launched more than six years ago to take people through the journey of JKUAT and all that transpires within. The promise of this objective has been held thus far, but now we seek to relaunch and re-energize the same through consistent and comprehensive accounts about this great University. The aim of of this site is to portray a first-hand account and bring to life the unique JKUAT experience by exploring a variety of topics of interest and areas that are instrumental in making the University what it is.
