About Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology
Who we are
Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology (KWUST) is a private, women’s only Kenyan university. As a women’s only university, our main objective is to bridge the gap in gender representation in higher education as well as contributing to the social and economic development of the country. The university was founded in 2002 and is accredited by The Commission for University Education (CUE).
We hold the view that Science and Technology is an indispensable tool in harnessing resources of nature for sustainable development and creating an environment in which human beings can survive and realise their potential; the human person has the moral obligation to creatively improve the environment.
The philosophy of KWUST is to lead to the development of human capital through scientific search based on Christian principles. This is achieved through an educational, scientific and technological approach through which every human being must rightfully experience and acquire the tools to actualise this philosophy.
Our campus is located in on a fifty acre parcel. It provides the ambiance which is conducive to genuine intellectual excitement and cutting-edge research at Kasarani. There are three intakes a year in January, May and September. The university has two schools and one faculty of science; School of Business and Management, School of Computer Science and Information Technology, and Faculty of Science.
