French multinational Schneider Electric has partnered with Strathmore Educational Trust to offer a three-year diploma course at the Eastlands College of Technology in Industrial Area’s Lunga Lunga.
Schneider will fund a solar and electric laboratory at the college.

“The partnership will see the implementation of a three-year qualifying diploma in electrical and electronics engineering specialised in telecommunications, an accredited course in electrical wireman and solar installations and a three-month certificate course in solar energy,” said Schneider in a statement.

More than 100 students are expected to undertake the course every year.

Schneider Electric has committed Sh500 million funding for five renewable energy and sustainable development projects in Kenya for two years.

“The lack of well-trained electricians and engineers in the electrical and energy fields is a major obstacle to the successful and sustainable development of a number of regions in emerging economies,” said Edouard Heripret, Schneider Electric general manager for East Africa.
The firm’s other investments in technical training include funding of an electrical lab at the Don Bosco Boys Town Technical Institute in 2017.
