Brief History of JKUAT
The Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is located at Juja along the Nairobi-Thika Highway, 36 kilometers to the northeast of Nairobi.
The Kenyan government established the Jomo Kenyatta College of Agriculture and Technology (JKCAT) in 1981 as a Middle Level College with the kind support of the Japanese government. Plans for the establishment of JKCAT began in 1977.
Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, the nation’s founding father, donated 200 hectares of land for the college’s establishment in early 1978.
The first group of students were admitted on 4th May 1981. H.E. Daniel Arap Moi formally opened JKCAT on 17th March 1982. The first graduation ceremony was held in April 1984 with Diploma Certificates presented to graduates in Agricultural Engineering, Food Technology and Horticulture.
On 1st September 1988, H.E. Daniel Arap Moi, declared JKCAT a constituent College of Kenyatta University through a legal Notice, under the Kenyatta University Act (CAP 210C). The name of JKCAT officially changed to Jomo Kenyatta University College of Agriculture and Technology (JKUCAT).
It was finally established as a University through the JKUAT Act, 1994 and inaugurated on 7th December 1994.
