Zetech traces its roots back to 1999 when it was founded as a Centre for ICT training. Coined 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 characterize 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 broke ground and constructed a multi-million University Complex along Thika Road, launched by His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta. After successful inspection by the Commission for University Education, the institution attained a Letter of Authority to offer University programs, consequently giving rise to Zetech University in August 2014.

In August 2022, Zetech University was awarded Charter by the government of Kenya under the leadership of His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta, having fulfilled the regulatory requirements and after a rigorous assessment by the Commission for University Education (CUE), joining the list of fully chartered universities in Kenya. With the award of the charter, the University continues to sustain and strengthen high-quality academic, training and research standards as it continues to deliver market-driven programmes and innovations to serve society.

The ISO 9001:2015 certified University continues to nurture students holistically through offering market-driven programs, access to world-class research and learning facilities and a wide range of Co-Curricular activities.
