Student Researchers

Murang’a University of Technology students — at the undergraduate and graduate level — conduct research in the lab and in the field, independently and with industry partners, in our local communities and all over the country. In doing so, they help us better understand and radically reimagine the world while building their academic portfolios.


Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students hone their skills through a multitude of opportunities to conduct faculty-mentored research projects.  Such experiences enhance students’ abilities to sharpen their leadership, critical thinking and problem solving skills that will fuel their success in organizations, institutions and communities after graduation.
