Industrial And Liaisons Office

Industrial Attachments are an excellent way to help the student learn more about a career, find out what it’s like to work in your potential career, gain valuable experience to build your resume get to know employers and make a solid network receive credit for real world experience.
An Industrial Attachment is a structured, credit-bearing work experience in a professional work setting during which the student applies and acquires knowledge and skills. It involves the application of learned skills in an organization related to the students’ major. An Industrial Attachment should challenge the student to examine the values of the organization involved in the experience, and to assess the student's education as it relates to the Industrial Attachment.Each department at THIKA technical has a departmental ILO who prepares letters for students from the department who will proceed for industrial attachment atleast three months before the students proceed for attachment.The letters are then put in the dhelpepartmental e-mail and the students are then given the email address and the password.They can now download the letter and edit it to suit each student by name admission number and the place each wants to request for attachment.This letter is then taken to the office of the ilo for signing and stamping.  

The ILO (Industrial and Liaisons Office) deals with the placement and assessment of the students in different organizations and companies for their industrial attachment. The student identifies the areas where he/she would like to be attached and gives this information to the office which writes to the organization an introductory letter about the student. The office also helps students who have failed to get an attachment by searching one for such students.NITA helps get attachments



Library

Library

As one of the core resources to students and lecturers as well, we have a well-stocked library that plays a major role in ensuring that our students get resources required to attain their goals. Our library is stocked with many and up to date books that any lecturer and student finds very helpful we have enough books for all courses to ensure uniformity in developing our students.

We also have small libraries in various departments where the books in this department belongs to the individual department. These departmental libraries assist the students in ensuring that they get the books they are looking for.

Other than the books, our library is very rich with contents from other sources. These includes journals, publications, thesis, and newspapers among other materials for learning. The issuing and returning of borrowed books has been simplified by having library management system for issuing, cataloging, circulation, reminders and OPAC search. We would like to welcome you to come and enjoy as you gain knowledge.

The library has a sitting capacity of about 100 students with a collection of more than 7000 copies of materials. It is also Wi-Fi enabled so that students can access the

internet any time. We have skilled personnel who ensure that the library is open from 0800hrs to 2200hrs on Mondays to Fridays and 0800hrs to 1300hrs on Saturdays.

We have plans to expand the current seating capacity to 800, subscription to e-resources, library security system, smart card scanners and system backup. This has been applauded by the library  staffs , lecturers    and the students whose reading culture is of essence not only to the Thika community but, Kenyan region.

ICT SUPPORT FUNCTIONS

Information Security and Virus management

With the plethora of virus' released on a daily bais, countless organisations suffer from unremitting virus outbreaks or work attacks, mnay of which can bring an organisations infrastructure down in seconds.  With the consequence of poor virus management being so great, Thika TTI believe that investment in virus protection is crucial.

Thika TTI, therefore, specialise in both virus protection and removal and ensure that all our managed desktops are wequipped with ththe latest windoews/virus definition updates to minimize the impact of any future attack.

Hardware and Software Maintenance

in order to minimize downtime in the evnt of a PC's hardware failing, we at Thika TTI have acquired a very-high level maintenance service with our hardware seller to make usre that a PC is backup and running in the least time possible.  If a hard drive needs replacing, then we will have ghost images to get the PC rebuilt and back on the desk in no time.

PC Refreshing

One of the principal causes of hardwares and software failure is the age of a PC. Aging hardware can also affect performance and in certain circumstances prove to be a security risk if not upgraded.  We advise that all hardware should be refreshed every 3-4 years and are constantly participating in roll outs to keep ahead of these issues.

Security Control/Management

In today's world, secury has got to be at the top of an organisation's IT strategy.  Therefore, we are constantly looking at ways of securing our environment and some of these include: password policies, user account managment, regular audits of file permissions and documentation amongst other.  Another security hole on the desktop side is user rights to a PC-administrative rights to desktops in the wrong hands which can cause major disruption to organisations.

ICT Support

Desktop Support currently suports a whole host of applications from Standard MS Office application.s  Every new piece of software that is introduced into Thika TTI is fully tested to check for conflicts with OS's or other applications.  If an application is not on our list of supported applications we will support this to the best of our knowledge.

Software Acquisition Distribution/Upgrades/Installation and disposal

When an application needs to be deployed to a large organisation it can prove to be very time consuming. We at Thika TTI aims to do this from a central location and push applications out to an organisation.  We use monitoring tools to ensure that all desktop machines are up-to-date with the latest virus definition files and the latest windows updates to ensure no holes in the security of the machines.  All new software, as mentioned before, is tested before being allowed to be installed in Thika TTI.

QUASO

Quaso

The office came to be in 2011. It is in the backdrop to try to try to establish an arm to look into academic matters in the curriculum. The office operates under the office of the deputy principal academics.

Message from Mr Kinuthia Jimm- QUASO

The main role of the office is to oversee quality standards throughout all the departments. It involves supervising and monitoring curriculum programs in the institute.

The office also is mandated in implementing the curriculum procedure. All the Head of Departments report to this office on curriculum implementation. We ensure implementation procedures are followed strictly in terms of student and teacher attendance, schemes of work and records of work are provided on time and followed strictly. Students also communicate directly to this office.

Since the establishment of this office there have been notable developments and achievements which includes; major improvement in teaching, assessment and evaluation levels. This is because the teaching and none teaching staff have an obligation to ensure all the right procedures are followed. The students also have their duty to ensure attendance and adherence to academic procedures are followed ton the latter.

The office has also made it easier to get the time that has really been spent on teaching and hence improving the teaching levels. Remedial measures are also done with regard to the above by ensuring that missed lessons are made up. The office also have instilled observance of timeliness set by the systems such that lecturers abide to the timelines.
