Society of Engineering Students

We do cool stuff

The JKUAT Society of Engineering Students is a body established for that student who desires to discover what lies beyond books. SES's activities are geared towards holistic development of its members, moulding individuals who are not only well adapted at classroom level, but also stand out in the practical scene and corporate engineering world at large.

SES Events

4 Apr
One of the core objectives of JKUAT SES is to enable the enhancement of its member’s soft skills- particularly Public Speaking and Leadership. It is with this in mind that this committee was incorporated into the Society as an extension of the Toastmasters International Organization.
11 Apr
Engineers go beyond just numbers and science, they possess unique talents in addition to their studies. We at SES aim to discover these talents and to recognise the best amongst us. All are welcome to attend and present.
18 Apr
SES aims to both recognise current entrepreneurs and to inspire new ones. Aspiring entrepreneurs from various fields of interest such as online business, integrated systems, fashion, art, engineering solutions are invited to attend and showcase.

SES projects is the beating heart of the society of engineering students. It is the only place where we get to grow and nurture our skills as engineers to become better engineers and forge a better future. It is where great minds meet to turn ideas into reality, dreams into tangible objects, and vision into a whole new thing. Come and listen as both the committee and brilliant innovators show some of the projects they have been working on.

Mentorship remains a key tool in SES as it has proven to be a successful means of preparing engineering students with relevant skills and knowledge for ease of entry into the job industry. This Tuesday will have former SES members now working within the industry in the country and beyond. SES members and engineering students are invited to attend and learn from these great minds.
23 May

Innovations go beyond economic solutions to social solutions, solutions that focus beyond just making money to just solving community problems. We at SES do our part in building the society and we invite you to come attend, see the innovations we have and be encouraged to do great things within your areas.

Engineering Students Devise Electronic Voting System
The JKUAT Society of Engineering Students (SES) held its annual hand-over elections on Tuesday February 27, 2018 and for the first time in the history of the society the exercise was done electronically. The society used an electronic voting system that had been designed and built by final year engineering students; Koi Anyango, Frederick Kirimi, Lucy Masaba and Pascal Aloo. The whole exercise which normally takes close to two hours, took only 40 minutes.
The system is an electronic voting box with a touch display that allows the voter to conduct the voting exercise with ease. The votes are instantly tallied on the onboard computer and stored in an onboard database and immediately the last person votes, the results are ready to be announced.
Lauding the efforts of the entire team that built the voting box, the lead innovator and SES outgoing chair, Pascal Aloo implored the Jomo Kenyatta University Students Association (JKUSA) to consider taking up the voting box for their elections. “I believe that electronic voting can be implemented for JKUSA students’ elections to guarantee a credible electoral process. We were able to conduct an election with 125 people voting in a transparent and efficient manner, in record time as well,” said Aloo. Aloo and his team are optimistic that their system will preempt cases of widespread impersonation and ballot stuffing that are common with manual voting and will be a great milestone if it is adopted by the University to carry out the upcoming JKUSA students’ elections. Engineering students line up to vote The SES has been at the forefront of encouraging innovation among students with most of its students participating in innovation competitions especially the JKUAT Tech Expo. Extolling the four students for their innovation, the incoming chair, Hampton Macharia said the next step for the Society is to support engineering students to learn hands on skills enabling them to fashion projects of value that give solutions to challenges facing the University and the community. “This will go a long way in achieving the Society’s vision of developing an all rounded engineering student,” said Macharia.

SES is made up of committees, they are the lifeline of what we do and are crucial for the execution of our programs and interaction with the students, administration and the corporate world. On this final meeting of the school calendar year, come and listen in as the committee heads present to us their achievements within the calendar year and their plans going forward.
