The School of Computing and Engineering – Strathmore Promise


What does a Strathmore University education mean to you?

Dr. McFie once said that we do not have a secret elixir really, it is a culture of excellence that we at Strathmore have nurtured and inculcated in our students over the years. We at Strathmore teach what is practical and relevant to the market because we are and have been practicing professionals and know what the market requires.

A first Open Day

In the true spirit of his words, the newly launched School of Computing and Engineering Sciences (SCES) held its first Open Day on Wednesday 23rd September 2020; although virtual, it determined to deliver its promises to its current and prospective students.

This one-of-a-kind virtual Open Day was an interactive one-on-one session organised by the School to give participants an insight into the Information Technology Master’s courses on offer. The School boasts an array of Master’s programmes with an interdisciplinary and practice-oriented teaching approach, as well as outstanding research.

On this first session of many, the panelists, Dr. Joseph Orero – Dean, Dr. Vincent Omwenga, Faith Siva, Regina Kithuka, and Angela Mayaka took participants through the Master of Science in Computer-Based Information Systems (MSc. CIS)Master of Science in Information Technology (MSc. IT), and Master of Science in Information Systems Security (MSc. ISS), in a simple gradual fashion.

Great online experience

With the global COVID – 19 pandemic, the education sector has had to rejig its model considerably. This has meant resilience on the part of the University which considers itself an industry leader by innovating and effectively implementing a blended mode of coursework delivery.

Speaking at the virtual Open Day, Dr. Orero reaffirmed the School’s preparedness to deliver a quality and impactful education to all prospective students. The three master’s courses are currently being offered remotely by an experienced faculty, promising an exceptional learning experience in which students will be empowered with skills needed to adapt quickly to the new global space.

“If you want a superior education, learn from people who have experience from having practiced a multitude of specialisations out there in the field,” Dr. Omwenga remarked while concluding an interesting session that brought together IT enthusiasts and professionals.
