Electrical engineers especially those working for Bamburi Cement, Kenya Power and KenGen earn more than Ksh100, 000 even if some of them don’t possess university degree. Electrical engineering is one such course that will take you places in Kenya.
Jobs like Monitoring and Evaluation and field officers earn handsome perks. These jobs pay well when an individual works for an NGO..and he can pocket as high as Ksh200,000 with just a diploma qualification.
