Testimonials

  • Dr. Richard Kipkemoi Ronoh

    I think of a graduate program as a place to learn, try, and miss a number of times, until finally you try and succeed. This process only happens if there is a supporting team that not only encourages you to try but also values your misses (in my opinion this is what research is all about). In this sense KIBU is a unique place. There is a saying – ‘To learn with the aim of becoming one’s teacher, to behave with the aim of becoming one’s role model’. Coming to KIBU to pursue my PhD was one of the most important decisions I have made and I am glad that I did. The PhD programme has provided me with great opportunities to conduct research across disciplines. Additionally the programme has given me incredible freedom and support to explore my intellectual interest. Faculty members, regardless of their research areas of specialization, were always there to lend a helping hand and provide advice.

    I am so fortunate to have graduated with my PhD in Information Technology at Kibabii University. The level of care and interaction I received from the School of Computing and Informatics and across academic disciplines, helped prepare me to be a good colleague at my academic placement and was personally enriching.

    As a PhD graduate from KIBU, I can say that this University has provided me with the chance to explore an array of different possibilities and choices for my future, most of which I would not have been aware of without being a student in it. Moreover, KIBU’s continual dedication and commitment to improve the quality of services to students, is what makes it so distinguished. For these I want to sincerely thank my two able supervisors Prof. Franklin Wabwoba and Dr. Samuel Mbugua for always been ready to lend a helping hand whenever I needed one. The entire academic journey had provided me with an excellent foundation to build a rewarding career and a happy life. As a research based University, I had to do a good amount of research which was a very positive educational experience for me. Finally, I am very grateful for KIBU’s help and support in getting to where I am today.

  • Dennis K. Gichuki

    I count myself lucky to have had an opportunity to pursue my post graduate studies at Kibabii university, which culminated to my being conferred with an MSc IT on 23rd November 2018. Though young, Kibabii has earned its place in the world academia by aggressively establishing several programmes right from certificate up to PhD level, a fit even the well established universities find difficult to match. The friendly and resourceful faculty, adequate learning resources, affordable fee and flexible programme made my post graduate life even more bearable. If I were to choose again, I would still choose Kibabii university. I believe the skills I have acquired will go along way in enhancing my career. I can’t wait to enroll for PhD in IT.

  • Dr.-Daniel-Otanga

    Kibabii University changed my life forever. I feel lucky to have attended and graduated from Kibabii University for a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce (Human Resource Option) in November 2016. The combination of a diverse and smart student body, a beautiful campus, dedicated and passionate lecturers who have experience and makes an unforgettable educational experience. There was as much learning inside the classroom as outside, whether through social interaction and probing conversation with interesting classmates and Lecturers. I didn’t reflect so much about it at the time, but looking back I can say it was really insightful and the learning I will keep for the rest of my life. I can say that Kibabii University for me was both about learning relevant academics that were highly relevant to be successful in university and in my further career, but more importantly it was a great life-learning for me to become more confident and clear about my future. It was a unique experience, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. I look back on my time at Kibabii University with tremendous pride.

    Kibabii University has a friendly learning environment which has made the learners appreciate the quality of the training they undergo. The completion time of any program is as per the stipulated requirement for such a program. Specifically, as pioneer PhD student in the University, I completed my PhD in Information Technology studies within a record three (3) years the stipulated time for the program. My sincere gratitude goes to the entire members of the School of Computing and Informatics who were very supportive during my study. I do specifically thank Prof. Wabwoba, Dr. Mbugua and Dr. Anselmo who were all the time ready to advise me whenever I approached them. Prof. Wabwoba who was my first supervisor kept me on my toes and thus made me realize my goal. The effort of the entire School made me make history becoming the first and the only student to graduate with a PhD on the Kibabii University first graduation ceremony held in November 2016. I thank the entire Kibabii Management and staff for good work that has propelled the University to greater heights. I take this opportunity to congratulate all the first graduates of Kibabii University first graduation ceremony in November 2016. May I also advice those that attained masters to enroll for PhD programs and those undergraduates to enroll for masters programs to boost their academic credentials.
