The linkages and collaborations depart­ment recognizes the fact that no orga­nization can stand on its own and hence the need for collaborative linkages that allow for adequate information exchange and networking at all levels in order to promote extensive link-ages of collaboration in Higher Education within the parameters of new trends of the 21st century. Our main goal is to develop synergetic relation-ships, linkages and collaboration on issues such as curriculum development, industrial consult­ing, capacity building and research.

The Department has continued to establish and nurture linkages and partnerships with local and international institutions. Kiambu Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) has collaborated with Kenyatta University, where with a Memorandum of Understanding having been arrived at, KIST is now offering Degree Programmes from Kenyatta University.

KIST is also in collaboration with Bake for Life Uganda, a college registered by Bake for Life Netherlands in partnership with the Little Sisters of St. Francis. The idea of Bake for Life originated from the wives of Dutch bakers who after observing the passion of their husbands in their profession, felt they wanted to use this for the benefit of the poor in developing countries. Bake for Life in collaboration with KIST of­fers diploma and certificate courses in Baking Technology with the ultimate aim of empower­ing persons with disability and other categories of vulnerable people through baking.

KIST is actively engaging with other organi­zations with the aim of building collaborative partnerships among them Housing Finance

  • Building of partnership with regional and international institutions
