Kenya needs more than half a million engineer technicians to serve its growing population.

According to a policy paper from the Ministry of Education on Kenya’s technical skills gap, the country needs 7500 engineers, 22500 engineer technologists, 90,000 engineer technicians and 450, 000 engineer artisans by the year 2030.

These experts are needed to serve Kenya’s growing population which is projected to be 60 million people by 2030.

The report insists on a need for young people to train in the above areas as a way to cater for the skills gap in the labour market.
