Department of Earth, Environmental Science and Technology

At DEEST the programmes goal is to train resource managers who can look at the environment in its totality, diagnose environmental resource issues and suggest sustainable mitigation measures at local, national and global levels.
The training is aimed at developing an awareness of the complexities of interrelationships between human and environment, because the way society frames these relationships determines how society allocates and/or conserves its natural resources.
Courses and areas of research include Environmental Resource Management, Environmental Science and Technology, Environmental Planning, Environmental Disaster Management, Geological Sciences, Atmospheric Science, Environment and Community Development and Integrated Water Resource Management. DEEST programmes join the rest of the institution to create a path way from certificate to PhD.
We at DEEST are determined to produce top environmentalists, environmental technologists and technicians who will apply their skills innovatively to conserve the environment for sustainable development.
Career Opportunities: DEEST graduates work with Kenya Agricultural Research Institutes, National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) at National, Provincial and District levels, Kenya Wildlife service, Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI), Ministry of Water, Ministry of Environment and Mineral resources, Mines and Geological departments, United Nations Environmental programme (UNEP), UN-Habitat, Ministry of Fisheries, City and Municipal Councils, National Museums of Kenya, International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology(ICIPE), ILIRI, Meteorological departments, Kenya Agricultural Research Institute(KARI), Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Fisheries, Office of the Prime Minister department of Climate Change, Universities, Marine research institutes and Ministry of Forest and Wildlife resources.
