Our Profile


The history of Coast Institute of Technology dates back to 1981 when a group of ten visionary leaders from Taita raised funds to purchase a 42 Acre piece of prime land from African Tourism Development Company Limited for the purpose of starting an institute of technology. It is established in a dynamic education zone in Voi in the coastal mainland, a historic area where the oldest missionary church in Kenya was first built. It is also known to have the first airstrip built in early 1900 in Maktau and used during the second world war in the fight between German and British troops.
