The PhD program is structured around course work and research thesis model. The program offers students five options for specialisation, which include industrial innovation and development, manufacturing systems and processes, sustainable energy and environment, industrial management as well as engineering materials and technology. The PhD program has also benefited from international collaborations and scholarships for student support. The current international organisations extending scholarship support to the PhD program include DANIDA through the Innovation and Renewable Electrification in Kenya (IREK) project as well as the Africa Development Bank (AfDB).
