Nairobi Aviation College flying high
Nairobi Aviation College is a leading aviation training institution in the East and Central Africa region.
The college also boasts highly qualified, dedicated, experienced and result oriented staff members.
Nairobi Aviation College has grown in stature in the decade it has been in existence. Not only has it diversified its course offering, it has also won the trust of both Kenyans and several top universities with which it collaborates.
Things are looking up for the college which also has plans to put up a university. The planned university will focus on offering a number of courses besides aeronautical engineering as this kind of course is not offered locally.
This move will give local aspiring engineers an opportunity to study within the country’s borders instead of having to fly out.
Nairobi Aviation College is the parent college to Mombasa Aviation Training Institute (MATI), Kenya Institute of Media and Technical (KIMT) and Twinga Friends Schools in Kitale.
The college has a campus in Eldoret Town on the 4th floor of National Bank Building and on the First Floor of Western Emporium Building on Oginga Odinga Street close to Zahra House near Ukwala Supermarket in Kisumu.
It has students taking their courses with Moi University programmes. This collaboration has made our students competitive in various professional fields. Students of Moi University Diploma at Nairobi Aviation College proceed to the relevant degree programs and those undertaking other courses can join any university besides.
The College Principal, Gilbert Maase, says the practical and field training it offers stands students in good stead when they step out into the market.
The college has industrial liaison office which is in charge of student placements both in terms of attachments and job opportunities. Through the office the college administration has been able to establish strong relationship with industrial players which has seen over 90 per cent of its students secure attachment and jobs with the assistance of the office.
The college offers a wide range of professional training programmes including aero engineering, cabin crew, hospitality and business-related courses like Business Management, Computer Studies, Mass Communication and Journalism, Clearing and Forwarding management, Purchasing and Supplies Management.
The college also runs a state-of-the art ICT centre at County House. After graduation, the students are sent for attachment with leading airlines, aviation maintenance firms and five star hotels.
The college boasts of its well equipped computer laboratory, Galileo laboratory, Amadus, engineering workshops, and its state of-the-art TV and Radio studios with their elaborate NAVIC news.
