Machakos University College (MUC) is a constituent college of Kenyatta University. Machakos University College opened its doors to public back in January 1957 as a Rural Technical Training School offering tailoring and carpentry courses.It was then run by the Local County Council before it was taken over by the government and renamed the Machakos Technical trade School a year later. It was later to become Machakos technical School, offering secondary school curriculum.

Machakos University College was one of the nineteen (19) Government National Technical Secondary Schools which were upgraded to post Secondary Technical Training Institutes with the advent of the 8-4-4 system of education in 1985. Its secondary status was phased out with the last batch of high school students sitting their KCSE in November 1987. It is from such humble beginnings as a rural Technical Training School that MUC has risen to the current prestigious status of a University College on its way to a fully pledged University.

MUC is a co-educational institution located at Machakos town along the Machakos-Makueni road approximately 1 km from the town, in an atmosphere conducive for serious study and research. The University has a competent team of qualified and experienced members of staff, who are well trained in their respective disciplines.
