Welcome to the Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology. Due to the diverse, global and sometimes dangerous applications of nuclear science, it is important for every nation to acquire all the necessary knowledge on this technology. After all, a major accident in any part of our globe finally affects everybody. Furthermore, there are areas where nuclear technology is the only available tool to solve some of our social problems.Our role at the Institute is to provide a platform for acquiring this knowledge through postgraduate studies and research. We are adequately equipped to carry out material and radioactivity measurements. In addition, we have equipment for air pollution measurements. Our research activities are usually multidisciplinary in approach. In fact our facilities are used by students and staff within our University as well as from other national Universities in and outside Kenya.
