The Building and Civil Engineering department was established in 1988, since then, enrolment of trainees has risen steadily to over 400 students in 2019. SIT is a TVET Institution of choice for pursuing Building, Civil Engineering and Land Surveying Courses. The department offers courses which are aligned to the Agenda 4 Initiative such as affordable housing. In 2016, the department received various state-of- the- art training machines and equipment from the Ministry of Education. Our highly qualified trainers accredited with the sector regulator TVETA, government fee capitation policy and HELB Bursary has enabled the institution to produce graduates that are job creators not job seekers. Consequently, the intervention by government have reduced the burden of fee payment on the parents, guardians and sponsors.
I would encourage the entire SIT Community to uphold the letter and spirit of our Mission, Motto, Core Values and Service Charter in order to take SIT to the next level.
