UoN Graduates Awarded Ksh 15M After Failing to Secure Employment

It's celebration time for students who studied engineering degrees but failed to secure employment after 9 years of trying. This is after the high court awarded them Ksh 15M as compensation.

According to Kenyans.co.ke with a citation from Business Daily, 75 students had sued Technical University of Kenya (TUK) after they convinced the court that the quality of degrees they learnt was of poor quality.

TUK was a constituent college of the University of Nairobi (UoN) and was then named Kenyan Polytechnic. The former students joined in 2009.

They told the high court that the degrees they attained at the institution were not recognized by the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) and therefore rendered them unemployable.

“I am therefore in agreement with the petitioners that they were students of the UoN and were entitled to be awarded degrees by the university in the absence of any legal provisions transferring the responsibility of awarding degree certificates to the TUK,” ruled the judge.
