About Us

BUCERED is a campus of Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) since inception in December 2015 and authorized to offer TVET programmes. It is from this background that MMUST in joint venture with Butula Community through NG-CDF signed an MOU in 2015 and renewed it in 2021 for corporation with the objective of establishing and operationalizing it to University College status as a TVET and research centre.

The campus began with two academic programmes in the year 2016 but by 2021 it had started offering five programmes in certificate, diploma and degree levels. The purpose of setting up the campus was to train manpower with skills and knowledge for sustainable development in Kenya. This was in response to the critical need for empowering youth in the country who become captive of boda boda menace, iddlers, and premature skillless house helpers and or wives.
