Mr.Daniel K. Mibei

Thank you for your interest in the department of Mechanical Engineering and Automotive Engineering at Emining Technical Training Institute [ETTI]. The department offers Diploma, Certificate and Artisan level courses in mechanical engineering and automotive engineering.The Diploma and Certificate Programs provide students with excellent foundations and requisite skills required in an industrialized world. The training involves theory, laboratory and workshop practices invarious subjects of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering.In Mechanical section, practical work on conventional machines is highly emphasized and industrial attachment is compulsory.Automotive section is a centre of excellence for automotive engineering training in Kenya which was selected by the ministry of higher education. The department has acquired modern, tools and equipment through the grants from Kenya sector support programme(K.E.S.S.P) fund.

I) Mechanical Engineering

Pursuing mechanical engineering diploma or certificate at the Emining Technical Training Institute gives you the opportunity to acquire technical knowledge, skills, attitudes and relevant exposure to a vast array of engineering subjects.This competence allows our graduates to excel in a wide range of careers and industries.Among the industries that our graduates will find satisfying career prospects Include; production engineering, plant maintenance, manufacturing, construction and service industries among many others. Indeed the vibrant entrepreneurial spirit in Kenya’s Jua Kali industry and the mainstream industries owe their existence to those who chose to pursue Mechanical engineering.

OBJECTIVES

The main objectives of the programs we offer is to provide an enriched curriculum following the KIE syllabi so that following the completion of the program and with a few years of experience our graduates will have the expertise to:

-Practice mechanical engineering in their various trade and skill areas

-Enhance professional practice to meet the global standards with ethical and social responsibility

-Skillfully provide practical solutions to workshop floor engineering problems.

-Work in large cross functional teams and pursue lifelong learning.

II)Production Unit

The Department has equipped workshops for automotive training,Mechanical training and welding section.A new ultra modern motor vehicle garage is to be constructed which will cater for education and training as well as a service provider to public customers the services will include;-

-Diagnosisand repairs.

-regular services done to motor vehicles e.g. changing of oil, checking oil

-Levels and water levels in batteries etc.

-Battery charging

-selling spare parts

-attachment provision

Also a welding and a fabrication workshop will be constructed to meet practical training and help in making of institutional, schools around and public furniture, window frames, door frames and any other fabricated products.These will be expected to be self –sustaining and earn income to cover its expenses as well as generating profits for future expansions.

III)  Automotive Engineering

Pursuing automotive engineering diploma or certificate at the Emining Technical Training Institute gives you the opportunity to acquire technical knowledge, skills, attitudes and relevant exposure to a vast array of engineering subjects.This competence allows our graduates to excel in a wide range of careers and automotive industries.The section is designed to deliver practical technical skills, using upgraded workshop facilities in Automotive Engineering, and Electronics, using modern tools and equipment received through HYDROMATICS LTD from the Ministry of education, science and technology.

OBJECTIVES
