Welcome to the Ramogi Institute of Advanced Technology (RIAT) Website:
RIAT is one of the pioneer institutes of technology in Kenya. The organizational philosophy of RIAT is translated in practical terms by the local word “riat” which forms the acronym for the institute. “Riat” means acting in unison; acting together, in the same way, at the same time.
At inception, this philosophy was practicalised in mobilizing the immediate RIAT Community and the people of Kenya to act together to raise funds which were utilized to establish the initial infrastructure.
Today, this philosophy has been rekindled and is now being applied to mobilize the RIAT faculty, students and support staff to act in concordance for purposes of realizing quality training.
The institute believes in working together for excellent achievements for all trainees. Discipline, cooperation, efficiency, effectiveness and quality are beacons of our belief and operational framework. Our intention is to keep alive the vision of the founding fathers of RIAT which was to see the institute develop into a centre of excellence in technological training.
In this regard, the institute will endeavour to identify and concentrate on demand-driven training programmes which are relevant to the needs of the industry in line with Kenya Vision 2030. A lot of emphasis will be laid on the acquisition of practical skills, sound work attitudes and entrepreneurial skills.
Entrepreneurship Education is intended to convert a good proportion of our trainees into job-creators rather than job-seekers.
A high standard of discipline and a deeply-rooted academic culture have strongly emerged at RIAT and those who join the institute will find it academically rewarding.
We look forward to welcoming you to RIAT
