WAITRO welcomes Technical University of Mombasa , Kenya

TUM joins WAITRO as a Full Member

TUM has recently joined WAITRO as a Full Member. The origin of Technical University of Mombasa can be traced back to the late 1940’s as a result of the consultations pioneered by Sir Philip Mitchell in 1948 between The Aga Khan, the Sultan of Zanzibar, the Secretary of State for the colonies, Sir Bernard Reilly and H. M. Treasury.

Historically, university researchers have collaborated with industrial scientists on marketable projects. As a matter of fact, Science historians have traced collaborations between companies and university researchers back to the 1800s. With the shifting of global economies, companies are aggressive in terms of access to faculty who created the cutting-edge knowledge and technology central to university research.

TUM, being a critical industry player in shaping the market, will seek to bring on board savvy minds across major faculties to drive its development agenda.
