Welcome to TAITAGIS Project
The Success Story of a GIS Training Hub at Taita Taveta University
The TAITAGIS project is a bilateral cooperation between Kenya (Taita Taveta University) and Finland (University of Helsinki). Young and progressive, Taita Taveta University (TTU) is the premier university of mining in Kenya. It also offers a diversity of courses on technology, environmental and social sciences, agriculture, and applied resource management.
TTU got chartered as a fully-fledged public university in 2016 after ten years of existence as a branch of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). Located in Kenya’s coastal mineral belt and the vast Tsavo conservation area, TTU commands a natural comparative advantage that supports real-world applications of GIS to decision-support on competing and conflicting resource planning and management imperatives.
I wish to make my sentiments known to you concerning our Masters GIS. It is after finishing the course you have taught about GIS for Urban and Regional planning and introducing the next course which we will begin next Monday that I wish to appreciate the real world application.
