On display, is Electracka Security System - an online system that provides an efficient and easy way for institutions to instantly and accurately verify the ownership of electronic devices at their exit points thereby stopping their theft before it happens or detect a stolen device. This system is already being used by the university and also at KICC.


MMU is also conducting demonstrations in various universities with a view of sharing the innovations with the institutions to collectively eradicate the free black market of stolen electronic devices in the country.


Also on display are 3D printer which converts soft copy models into 3D using plastics, Power Metering and Monitoring System which measures power consumed by all the units intrinsically and displays it on the LCD screen and creative ATM animation that provides audition instructions in vernacular language to users, among other innovations.


The university is also displaying various academic programmes in ICT, Media and Communication, Engineering and Technology, Science and Technology, Business and Economics and Social Sciences.
