Multimedia University College of Kenya (MMU)
The college was founded in 1948 as Central Training School catering for the training needs of the then East African Posts and Telecommunications administration. In 1992 it was upgraded to a College of higher learning and became fully autonomous subsidiary of the Kenya Posts and Telecommunication Corporation (KPTC). In 1999, when KPTC ceased to exist, KCCT became a fully owned subsidiary of Telkom Kenya Ltd.
Over the years KCCT has been giving quality training programs to individuals and organizations, locally, regionally and internationally. In addition to other courses, the College offers high quality programs, Courses and Seminars, in areas of Management, Information Technology, Telecommunications Engineering and Operations, Postal and Courier Services Management.
In 2008 KCCT was elevated to a constituent college of JKUAT. Consequently it was renamed to Multimedia University College of Kenya (MMU). MMU is Kenya’s premier institute of higher learning in telecommunication engineering, human resource management, postal and courier services. As the giant trainer in telecommunication in the East African region, its clients come from all over Africa and beyond. MMU has a long working relationship with international and national organizations such as PAPU, UPU, ITU, JICA, ESAMI, INTELSAT, KIM and CCCA.
Its students' number varies from time to time and can reach a peak of 15,000 at one given time. The College does not go to full recess due to the nature of clients and their varied needs which demands the service throughout the year. However, the staff holiday and other breaks are taken as scheduled for each department.
