Modern economies are predicated on manufacturing to support all sectors of the economy such as; agriculture, health, communication, construction, energy, education, and defence; in addition to providing the day-to-day needs of society. Manufacturing therefore, lies at the heart of any functional modern economy. Manufacture however, cannot be without a proper understanding of the materials that form products, equipment and infrastructure. The Technical University of Kenya have developed curricula that reorients such understanding to include knowledge of the occurrence, extraction, chemical and physical nature, processing, treatment, formation processes of materials aimed at producing and improving products, and post production performance, treatment and maintenance. In our training, we incorporate the trending technologies and processes to make the overall production favourable and functional to the ultimate user.
