Biometric kit to be used for registration of first years in September 2017. Each biometric kit contains a camera, a signature pad, laptop, tripod stand and a scanner

Four biometric kits have been handed over to the College of Biological and Physical Sciences (CBPS) a week before first years are expected to join the University. The biometric kits will serve four schools of the College and are set to provide biometric details of students upon registration. The Biometric kits will capture student details with the pilot project commencing with first year students joining the University on September 4, 2017. 

The kits will enable the institution keep track of the actual number of students at any given instance as well as enhance security owing to the student details available through their finger prints.

"This is important for security in the University, noted Prof. Stephen Kiama", Principal College of Agriculture and Veterinary Studies.

"In the future, the biometric kits can be used for access control as well as identification and registration during examinations, which will give us an opportunity to use digital registration as opposed to printing of hard copy examination cards that are presently being used", added Prof. Kiama while handing over the kits to the Principal CBPS, Prof Bernard Aduda, the College security and the College ICT team. 

The handing over took place at the Principal's boardroom on August 28, 2017 and was witnessed by Mr. Christopher Moturi, ICT Director.
