Mr. C. Mwela HOD Mechanical
Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department at Kabwe Institute of Technology (KIT).
The department runs craft and technician programmes at the moment but will soon offer technologist programmes in some of the courses that it is offering. The students the department are expected to possess a thorough understanding of engineering science, analytical and practical skills in their area of study.
The graduates from the department are contributing massively to the economic development of this country. Majority of them are working for major industries such as the mines, Zambia Sugar, Toyota Zambia and Zambia Breweries. Some are working for the government and a few have come up with their own enterprises where they have even created employment for others.
All students in the department learn entrepreneurship as a course so that they are able to stand on their own in case they decide to form enterprises.
