As part of our strategy to market our programmes, Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) visited Waa girls Secondary school on March 4th 2016 for a career talk. A total of 950 students from form four, form three and form two participated.
TUM lecturers from the School of Business, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Applied and Health Sciences and the Institute of Computing and Informatics took ample time to explain to the students on the entry requirements, cluster subjects and the mean grade required to pursue different courses at TUM.
The students were overwhelmed by Paul Akwabi’s invention, the digital visitor’s book when he demonstrated to them how it works. Digital visitor’s book caught the attention of Mombasa governor Hassan Ali Joho and Safaricom Chief executive officer Bob Collymore during Mombasa international cultural festival 2015. Akwabi is a third year student from the Institute of Computing and Informatics.
Christine Njiru from Pure and Applied Sciences also did a very good presentation on her invention dubbed desalination of seawater which left the crowd in disbelief.
Swaleh Bakari Kula a lecturer from Applied and Health Sciences insisted that students who do not qualify for Degree courses can enroll for Certificate and Diploma courses since TUM is still a TVET institution.
