Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) visit to the Sacred Heart Mukumu Girls High School, in Kakamega County, is set to empower students for lifelong career development. This was evident during the annual Career Fair day held on 11th June, 2022 at the school. MMUST’s team led by Ms. Marcella Nandi who was representing the Director Career Services, Dr. Teresa Okoth, proved that it is one of the top best Universities nationwide.

During the event, Ms. Marcella Nandi highlighted programmes offered by the University and their strength in the competitive job market. She acknowledged that all the courses have been accredited and emphasized medicine as the most competitive course in the job industry. She also demonstrated to the students how to calculate the cluster points to various courses.

“You should work harder to attain the best grades in order to qualify for the competitive courses required in the job industry. Most of these courses require a mean grade of an A (plain) in all subjects. Make the right choices during selection of courses and ensure you select courses you are passionate about,” said Ms. Nandi.
