Dedan Kimathi University of Technology identifies herself as an Entrepreneurial University hence has the focus of ‘raising’ students with the ability to develop new solutions to problems be it in the context of employment in a company or in self-employment. Through DeKUT Office of Career Services, the University looks to enhance this focus and ensure that students’ acquire soft skills, professional skills as well as attitudes relevant to their post-graduation employability. This will be achieved through creation of mechanisms to tap into the capacities of the already established centres at the University that work to develop the students’ entrepreneurial and start – ups building capacity. These centres include: the Start-up Centre, the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management (CEIM) and Dedan KimathiInnovation and Incubation Hub (DeHUB).
To tap into the pool of potential from other partners and industry players, DeKUT Office of Career Services will also be keen to organize Webinars on various topics and aspects towards skills, professional and right attitude development as well as empowerment. These webinars will also serve as opportunities to network with staff, alumni and industry players.
