Bomet University College is the first public University in Bomet County. It is strategically placed at the heart of Bomet County. Its establishment is a step towards realization of a fully-fledged University in line with the government policy to establish at least one University in every County. The County Education Board (CEB) recommended the establishment of a University in Bomet County. Subsequently Moi University was approached to consider starting a campus in Bomet that would eventually be upgraded with time to a University status. The then Vice Chancellor, Prof. Richard K. Mibey sent a University technical team to assess the viability. After consultation with Bomet County leaders and other stakeholders, Bomet TTI, which was still under construction, was handed over to Moi University in March 2016 to start a campus. Thereafter it became operational and the first cohort of GSSP students were admitted on 31st August 2016 to Bomet College.
Bomet County has a huge population and other unique resources that merit establishment of a university. Indeed, the national Government resources to put up the college and the community fully supported by giving land in Bomet town. Some sections of the leadership were not supportive. BUC in the initial stages started with five programmes of Moi University and this is envisaged to grow to 11 schools and five centres of research in the next five years. BUC endeavours to develop creativity and innovation to enable students to fit in the job market, by taking a practical approach to learning emphasizing the element of attachments and field work in training of its students.
