We are here to shape the learners destiny and to be a change in the world for the better, keeping abreast with the changing technological trends towards the service to humanity.
To be a dynamic and employer driven trainer of highly skilled electrical engineering graduates to meet the local and globally job placement requirements.
To provide the state of the art hands on training in the electrical engineering and allied trades in a bid to have graduates who are creative, enthusiastic and problem solvers befitting the electrical engineering industry.
The Electrical Engineering Department of The Kisumu National Polytechnic has expanded over the time to offer the following courses to a student enrollment of 500:
- Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Power Option)
- Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Telecommunications)
- Craft in Electrical and Electronics Technology (Power Option)
Starting as a section of the Electrical Education Course, the Department has grown with the institution. From its inception in 1967 to a fully fledged department in 1996 when the then Kisumu Technical Institute was inaugurated as a Polytechnic and finally to The Kisumu National Polytechnic in 2015.
In year 2013, the African Development Bank sponsored the construction of the Electrical Engineering Department complex and in February 2015 donated equipment for the workshops and the laboratories. The Department has:
- Computer Laboratory
- Smart Laboratory for the state of the art simulation and training.
The department enjoys the brand of highly trained staff from the experienced industrialists as well as the vigor of the fresh graduates, which make learning and training enthusiastic and solution oriented.
As a Department, we value collaboration and partnership with other practioners in the Electrical Engineering industry which has yielded the installation of an SPV power system female students hostels (2011), among others. We keep abreast with the current technological trends through industrial visits, professional talks, seminars, workshops and personal initiatives.
