Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT)
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania


University description (as per official university website)

The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) is located in the Dar es Salaam city centre, at the junction of Morogoro Road and Bibi Titi Mohamed Street. Historically, DIT was established in 1997 by the Act of Parliament, “the DIT Act No.6 of 1997” through upgrading of the then Dar es Salaam Technical College, which had a long history of technical training in Tanzania. This history dates back to 1957 when its predecessor; the Dar es Salaam Technical Institute was established with the main task of providing vocational training in the country. The Institute later expanded its scope to offer technical secondary school courses and training for Technical Assistants before it was upgraded in 1962 to become the Dar es Salaam Technical College (DTC); the first formal technical training institution in the country.

Part of the responsibilities of DTC at the time of its inception was to train technicians under the London City and Guilds Training Programme. In order to enhance its contribution to the national capacity building in technical manpower, the College in 1964 introduced two and a half year Ordinary Technician Diploma (OTD) programmes in Civil, Electrical, Telecommunications and Mechanical Engineering. These were later upgraded into three year Full Technician Certificate (FTC) courses in 1970/1.

Concurrently with that move, the College also introduced Diploma in Engineering (DE) programmes in the four traditional engineering disciplines to provide post-FTC technical training. Courses for Laboratory Technology and Diploma in Technical Education (DTE) were also introduced.

The position of DTC in the provision of higher technical education was consolidated in 1991 when the corresponding Advanced Diploma in Engineering (ADE) programmes replaced the Diploma in Engineering (DE) courses. Today, DE and ADE graduates can be found in almost all engineering firms/institutions and positive feedback is available from the respective employers to indicate their overall good performance.

These achievements however, needed to be complemented with some more proactive Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology - PROSPECTUS 2007/2008 1 plans to cope with the new developments in the country and worldwide. The current political and economic trends, as well as the new technological changes have increased competition in the demand for, and supply of quality products including technical education and services.

Under such a competitive environment, the leading position of DTC in the provision of higher technical education could not be sustained for long, with its old set-up and mission. A new institution was therefore necessary to replace the Dar es Salaam Technical College; the institution that can effectively address the current technologica developments, provide competitive academic outputs in terms of quality technical training, applied research and expertise services to the community. The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology was therefore established in 1997 to realise that aspiration, as guided by its vision and mission.

DIT is a fully accredited institution by the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) .It offers a wide range of full-time, part-time and professional engineering qualifications and courses. The Institute has replaced the (FTC) and (ADE) programmes with Ordinary Diploma and Bachelor of Engineering programmes respectively (i.e National Technical Awards (NTA) Level 4-8) in line with the NACTE competence based modular training system.

Currently, the Institute is undergoing both administrative and academic transformations to match with its new structure, roles and functions. The expectations and aspirations of Tanzanian towards DIT are very high as expressed in the National Technical Education and Training Policy of 1996, National Higher Education Policy of 1999 and Tanzania Development Vision 2025 of 1999. Our ultimate goal is to transform DIT to a worldclass centre of excellence in Engineering, Applied Sciences and Entrepreneurship.

This Prospectus therefore, describes the main features of the DIT in line with the customers' and stakeholders' interest. It provides an outline of academic programmes. It gives important information on the basic requirements, procedures and regulations to be met for one to get admission and graduate at the Institute, course programmes, course duration and other necessary information.
