Industrial attachment is one of the key components of TVET programme. It serves as a link between what the trainee is taught in class and what goes on in the actual world of work. It also gives opportunities for staff to keep abreast with the dynamic technological trends outside their routine work environment thus leading to improved service delivery.

The industrial liaison office is in charge of coordinating all matters related to the industrial attachment of all trainees and trainers. The office provides the linkage to the industries with any firm or organization where our trainees and trainers can acquire the necessary practical skills and knowledge that can only be learnt outside the confines of the lecture rooms.
The office is headed by the Industrial Liaison Officer assisted by departmental industrial liaison officers representing their academic departments
