Profile View

The department of Art & Design is the only one in Kenya that offers all the three specializations namely: Textile and Fashion Design and Merchandising, Interior Design and Fine Art all with Information Technology.

The design field directly addresses various human needs and therefore, there is an ever increasing demand for skilled and knowledgeable workforce to satisfy these needs. There is also an increasing need for training in the field to better serve these needs, making the department very sustainable as shown by the increasing number of students. The Department boasts of very dedicated staff that is already working with the minimal facilities to produce the best graduates in the Design industry in Kenya. The Department constantly receives calls by companies for her graduates to be absorbed and as interns, indicating the high level of performance by our graduates. A follow up of our graduates indicate that most of them rise to head design departments and also start their own design firms. The department has also formed linkages with various Industry players to help enhance the training skills and offer exposure to students. The Department runs a textile production unit that serves as the University textile production facility. This makes the Department both academic and industrial which is essential for students going through the programme.
