Zetech traces its roots back to 1999 when it was founded by Eng. Ken Mbiuki as a Centre providing ICT training. Established from the direct incorporation of the words Zenith and Technologies, it rose to a College offering additional tertiary courses. The word Zenith is of Greek origin and is used to characterize the concept of being ‘At the Very Top’.
Driven by a passion to meet the high demand for quality education, the institution embarked on a 15 year strategic blueprint manual that outlined the aspiration to attain University status. Thereafter, the institution entered a decisive phase towards achieving University status when it broke ground and constructed a multi-million University Complex along Thika Road, launched by His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya. After successful inspection by the Commission of University Education, the institution was awarded a Letter of Authority to offer university programmes, consequently giving rise to Zetech University in August 2014.
