Meru University of Science and Technology

CBC: Top

The idea of establishing a University dates back many years to the early 1960s when the Njuri Ncheke (Council of elders of the Meru people) conceived an idea of establishing an institution of higher education in Meru.  It was in the mid-1960s soon after Kenya’s Independence that the elders initiated the process of establishing the institution. The idea was first floated to the government at a time when it was interested in training the youth of the nation in order to equip them with skills in various technical fields to enable them work in the upcoming industries and other sectors that required qualified manpower and also to meet local and national economic developmental needs. Meru College of Technology (MECOTECH) was therefore one of several institutions suggested by the Government.

In 2008, the Government of Kenya converted Meru College of Technology (MECOTECH) into a University and named it Meru University College of Science and Technology (MUCST). It was established through Legal Notice No. 103 of 18th July 2008 as a constituent college of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).

Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) was established as a full-fledged University following the Award of Charter on 1st March, 2013.  Subsequently, Dr. James N. Mwangi, CBS was appointed the first Chancellor.
