Future Areas of Focus: Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering.
Due to the fact that Taita-Taveta District and the Coast Province are some of the areas in Kenya with significant mineral deposits which can be exploited commercially, the JKUAT Taita-Taveta Camputs is being proposed as a centre for mining and mineral processing Engineering.
Among the economic minerals found in the area include, Titanium, Zirconium, Thorium, Limestone, Iron Oxide, Lead, Zinc, Copper, Nomibium, Rare Earth Elements, Phosphates, Tanzanite, Silica and Rubies. There is also suspicion that there are also oil deposits along the Kenyan Coastline.
To this end the Campus offers a Bachelor of Science in Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering. Certificate and Diploma Courses in Mining and Mineral processing are under development.
In line with this, the Centre for Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering will also require support from a number of Disciplines.
The supporting disciplines will be more than merely servicing units, instead we propose an inter disciplinary co-existence that will enhance quality and relevance of courses being offered. The proposed supporting disciplines are as follows:
1.Business studies and Economics:
2. Mathematics and Information Technology:
3. Natural Sciences and Environmental Studies:
