The newly inaugurated council.
The Embu University College (EUC) council was inaugurated after its upgrading from Embu Agricultural Staff Training (EAST) by President Mwai Kibaki, a government legal notice last year. The college becomes the third constituent college of the University of Nairobi – others being the South East University College (SEUCO) and the Kenya Polytechnic University College. EUC will admit its first batch of 350 students this academic year to pursue courses in science and agriculture.
Previously known as Embu Agricultural Staff Training (EAST) College, the Embu University College is a new addition to UoN. It is one of the nine new university constituent colleges upgraded in a legal order by the government.
