Centre for Engineering Innovation and Production (CEIP) - The Technical University of Kenya

Welcome to Centre for Engineering Innovation and Production (CEIP)

THE rate of growth of technology, its increasing speed of transfusion, and the increase in the number of innovations worldwide, demands the creation of proper and solid linkages between the sources of knowledge and production units. Such linkages must be conscious of both time and space in order to reduce the time lag between the development of knowledge and its conversion into technology and eventual products. The ever increasing demands of society on quality and safety, and the competitive nature of business in the world today also demand quick feedback and correction measures with respect to products that are placed in the market. Such considerations all point to the development of integrated centres for the development of knowledge and technology, and the subsequent manufacture of related products, as an optimal solution. It is such an innovation that the Centre for Engineering Innovation and Production is intended to be, within which will be the following units: Innovation and Design, Manufacturing and Production, Commercialization and Enterprise, and Technology Transfer and Training.

The Centre for Engineering Innovation and Production (CEIP) is committed to developing human resource to cater for the needs of the manufacturing and service industries in the area of Tool Technology and Computer Aided Design, Computer Aided Manufacturing and Computer Aided Engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE). CEIP aims to become the preferred Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) service provider in manufacturing and service industries with the goal of improving the competiveness of the industrial sector through expert training, availability of state-of-the-art equipment and high-tech facilities in high-value manufacturing.
