Zetech traces its roots back to 1999 when it was founded by Eng. Ken Mbiuki as a Centre providing ICT training. Established from the direct incorporation of the words Zenith and Technologies, it rose to a College offering additional tertiary courses. The word Zenith is of Greek origin and is used to characterise the concept of being ‘At the Very Top’.
Driven by a passion to meet the high demand for quality education, the institution embarked on a 15 year strategic blueprint manual that outlined the aspiration to attain University status. Thereafter, the institution entered a decisive phase towards achieving University status when it broke ground and constructed a multi-million University Complex along Thika Road, launched by His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya. After successful inspection by the Commission of University Education, the institution was awarded a Letter of Authority to offer university programmes, consequently giving rise to Zetech University in August 2014.
Since inception, over 60,000 students have graduated as the Varsity’s drive to enrich lives through education grows every day; this has been achieved through significant growth of programmes offered, development of modern infrastructure and a team of distinguished faculty who are passionate trainers, to meet the demand for quality higher education in Kenya and beyond.
The University, which has a current population of 7000 students, is committed to scaling the heights of education in the world with a mission to provide holistic higher education through promoting excellence in research, integrating innovation and technology in learning and developing well rounded citizens to impact the social, political and economic world.
The ISO 9001:2015 certified institution has its main campus located in Ruiru, along the Thika Super Highway.
