Zetech University is founded on the passion of a man who sought to enhance computing technology in Kenya at a time when it was fairly new. While still an undergrad studying for his degree, Ken Mbiuki turned his dorm room into a part-time classroom, where he was offering basic IT training to others, under the name Zenith Technologies. He took the idea further and set up an ICT academic institution offering I.T. based courses, which grew to become the accredited Zetech University we know today.
