Best Universities to study civil engineering in Kenya



Civil Engineering is among the top 10 best degree courses in Kenya. But despite that fact, you should study at a popular university so that you can stand out.

There are over 20 universities in Kenya that offer Civil Engineering at diploma and undergraduate level. The course takes at least 5 years but there are some training institution that ensure a student takes minimum time, which is not good considering it’s a technical course.

Looking at various colleges that offer this course, the following are the best to enroll for the course.

  1. University of Nairobi
  2. Jomo Kenyatta University of Science and Technology (JKUAT)
  3. Moi University
  4. Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST0
  5. Technical University of Kenya
  6. Kenyatta University

University of Nairobi is the best training institution in Kenya because has world class facilities, experienced tutors as well as accreditation. It is followed by JKUAT,which specializes in IT and engineering courses.Moi University as well as MMUST are also competitive training institutions.


  1. This list is a JOKE. KU doesn’t even have approved engineering courses and Isn’t approved by the engineering board of Kenya. You left other institutions such as Dedan Kimathi University of Technology which is one of the best engineering schools in the country. I’d let a REAL Engineer write this list instead of a business student like yourself because your very much misleading our future developers who might just lead this country in the right direction were it not for your ignorance!
