Machakos University has invested in digital transformation of its core functions. The ICT Directorate has been instrumental in guiding the process. In the recent past the University has upgraded its infrastructure to match the student and staff capacity.
Currently the University is running an ERP which serves both academic and administrative functions. This is an expandable system which was piloted in 2012 and over the years has been customized to meet the University’s growing needs.
The ICT directorate is mandated to oversee Design, implementation, management and review of ICT functions in the Institution. The University is determined to be a preferred University of Scholarly Excellence by providing scholarly education through Training, Research and Innovation for Industrial and socio-economic transformation of its communities.
The ICT directorate blends in this endeavor by providing an enabling environment through access to information, and thus a platform for knowledge gathering and opportunity for research and collaborations.
