History of KURIS

Kenyatta University Research Innovative Technology Society was founded by Mr. Mwangi Macharia and launched on 30th of October 2015. The launch was conducted during a meeting held at BSSC room 152. The turn up was great, with students and friends pouring in to support their very own society. The meeting was chaired by Mwangi Macharia, the chairman then, and was conducted from 2-5p.m. Initially, KURIS used to be known as SIRITECH, acronym for Science Invention Research Innovation and Technology Society, but changed to KURIS shortly before registration. Currently, the chair of KURIS is Ms. Sharon Chacha. After being launched, the Society has had several activities which include

  • Participated in KUSA awards 2016 and emerged the best new club in Kenyatta University.

To prepare members for an unforgivingly competitive future, training them in important aspects and skills along their line of interest or study, to face the world boldly and equipped. Exposure, leadership and team work are among the important aspects and skills of life the society aims to inculcate to its members.

KURIS has been awarded the best new club of the year in Kenyatta University and the third best club in School of Pure and Apllied Sciences. One of the greatest Achievements KURIS has made is to be able to bring members from very different courses, department and schools together under one umbrella, where they can share ideas, thus increasing inter-personal skills and creating confection. Through KURIS, people have met their long lost high school buddies, and even made new friends, those they could not have met, if there lacked a platform like KURIS. In addition, KURIS has enabled different people to exercise their leadership skills, by serving as leaders in different capacities. KURIS has enabled people to present their ideas, express their opinion on different aspects of life, develop a positive attitude towards life and get challenged by their colleagues to do better in life.

To rear a transformed generation of people who will go out to show the world the real gist of success, development and positive transformation.
