Recognition of engineering technology programs offered at the technical university of Kenya comes after the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) refused to accredit its courses. KETRB was created as a result of the Technical University of Kenya (TU-K) in conjunction with the Institution of Engineering Technologist and Technicians (IET) lobbying for the enactment of the Kenya Engineering Technicians and Technologist Act.  The act establishes KETRB a statutory body which will regulate four carders of people: Engineering Technologists, Engineering Technicians, Engineering Craft Persons and Artisans.

Technicians and Technologists finally get recognition
