Besides being strategically placed, the University provides students with market oriented and good opportunities that enhance their career development. The curriculum is research oriented and policies are students “centric”

The University is relatively young but has started its baby steps in research and innovation. This is affirmed by recent application e-voting software in our students’ elections. The software was conceptualized and developed by students themselves. This marked the first successful e-voting in Kenya’s Universities notwithstanding that Machakos University is relatively a young institution.
