2) Geomatic Engineering and Geospatial Information Systems(GEGIS)
A Geomatic Engineer is a professional with academic qualifications and technical expertise who uses modern engineering tools to practice the science of measurement; to acquire, assess, process, analyze, and present land and geo-referenced information (in the form of maps, plans, and other documents); to use that information for the purpose of planning and implementing the efficient administration of the land, the sea, and structures thereon; and to investigate.
General land surveying, engineering surveying, geodetic sciences, mapping, geographic sciences, economics, environmental sciences, land economics and development, law, and professional studies are only a few of the subjects addressed. Geomatic Engineering considers the legal, economic, environmental, and social factors that effect projects.
3) Geospatial Information Science (GIS)-4 year programme
GIS (Geospatial Information Science) is a four-year program that combines the disciplines of computers, surveying, mapping, cartography and visualization, environmental science, and statistics to gather, analyze, and model geographically based or related data. GIS is a fast evolving subject that is used to solve issues and provide effective solutions in a growing number of applications that need spatial, location, or position-based data.
This encompasses, but is not limited to, environmental and natural resource management, exploration and mining, land ownership, urban and regional planning, facility and utility management, asset management, health planning, demography marketing, and so on. Indeed, approximately 80% of all data processed today is dependent on or connected with location.
The emphasis of the training is on current techniques of geodesy , digital mapping, Remote Sensing, cartography, Geo-information, and Satellite Positioning such as Global Positioning System (GPS) but also offers an adequate foundation on traditional geo-information data acquisition and processing techniques.
4) Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Students learn algebra, fundamental electrical and electronic concepts, and general studies courses over their first three years. Students might choose to specialize in either light current or heavy current in their last two years.
To be able to carry out design and research work, students are required to master a methodical and analytic approach to electrical and electronic engineering. They must also acquire a positive attitude toward society’s needs and ambitions, as well as a feeling of responsibility.
5) Electronic and Computer Engineering
Contemporary engineering systems, computer-aided design and communication networks, and process control in modern industrial plants all rely on computers. Electronic and computer engineers must be knowledgeable with computer architectures and hardware, as well as have strong analytical abilities and a comprehensive electrical engineering experience.
The Electronic and Computer Engineering degree seeks to provide graduates with a mix of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, electronic systems, and electronic components skills. Graduates will be capable of designing and maintaining electrical and computer systems for a wide range of technical applications. They will also have software engineering skills.
6) Telecommunication and Information Engineering
The Telecommunication and Information Engineering degree program is designed to address the demand for trained labor as well as to enable the creation, design, and manufacture of innovative ideas and products in this industry.
This will give users access to a variety of new mobile, radio, rural, and distant communication technologies, including voice, data, fax, email, internet, and video/data. The core will be the use of information systems (preparation, collection, transmission, retrieval, storage, access, display, and transformation). It is the first undergraduate-level course of its sort in East Africa.
7) Mechanical Engineering
The emphasis of the degree is on applying mechanical engineering ideas, notably in design and manufacturing. All first-year, second-year, and third-year units are common.
Elective units in a chosen area of expertise, such as automotive or production engineering, are taken in the fourth and fifth years of the program. A student must complete an eight-week required practical training attachment at the University at the conclusion of the second year and another at the end of the third and fourth years of study, which includes units of practical training in engineering workshops during academic semesters.
In their last year of study, a student must complete a relevant engineering project under the supervision of a member of the academic staff.
8) Mechatronic Engineering
This course provides students with a broad grasp of current engineering and production, as well as specialized abilities in electronics and computer-based technologies.
Mechatronics is a branch of engineering that combines features of electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering with a knowledge of production processes. Computer Aided Engineering, comprising Computer Aided Design, Drawing, and Manufacturing, Engineering Systems, Engineering Analysis, Electronic Devices and Circuits, and Control Systems Analysis are among the modules covered in the course.
The goal of the course is to prepare engineers to lead or work in multidisciplinary design teams on products with both mechanical and electrical components. Modern precision equipment, for example, combines mechanical and electrical design (such as a computer disk drive). The field also includes robotics.
9) Marine Engineering
This degree program is meant to generate and retain competent people capable of developing and maintaining ship propulsion units, ship structures, and all supporting machinery, as well as initiating manufacturing initiatives and improving current marine operations.
The program is designed to fulfill the International Maritime Organization’s criteria. Graduates of this curriculum will be able to work on both the high seas and on land. Students also go through cadet training to learn the requisite life skills, as well as some IMO-mandated obligatory courses, in addition to the academic and practical curriculum.
10) Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering
The goal of this curriculum is to produce engineers with expertise in both mining and mineral processing. The process of extracting mineral resources from the ground in response to human demands is known as mining engineering.
Mineral processing engineering, on the other hand, entails extracting valuable material constituents from undesired waste material from the ore body in the most cost-effective manner. All students will cover common units in mathematics, applied science, fundamental engineering concepts, and fundamentals of mining and mineral processing engineering over the first three years of the program.
A student will take optional units in either mining or mineral processing engineering in the fourth and fifth years of study, in addition to the core courses. Each student will be required to participate in an eight-week industry-based practical attachment at the university at the end of the second, third and fourth year of study.
In the final year of study, every student must undertake a suitable engineering project under the supervision of a member of the academic staff.
11) Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
This program seeks to produce specialist Engineers who can handle challenges in agro-industrial growth and the resulting environmental concerns by integrating biological and technological abilities. During the fourth and fifth years of study, students might major in Soil, Water, and Environmental Engineering or Biomechanical and Processing Engineering.
