Background Of The Institute

The Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology (INST) is in the College of Architecture and Engineering at the University of Nairobi . It was started in 1979 as the Centre for Nuclear Science Techniques within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. This was as a result of a combined initiative of the Kenya Government through the National Council for Science and Technology, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the University of Nairobi . It later was elevated to an Institute of Nuclear Science, as and when its activities increased. With expanded scope and mandate into areas of Renewable Energy and other future developments, the Institute came to be known as Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology.
