Rationale of Developing the Programme

The Electrical and Electronics  Engineering field is a fast growing field in the word today.The tremendous technological growth that we have seen in the past four decades has had a significant influence in lives of nearly everybody.

New systems and services have emerged at an unprecedented rate and these require installations, maintenance and trouble shoot. However, in Tanzania there is a shortage of technicians who can do this work.

Thus the rationale of developing the programme is thtreefold

  • To address the extreme shortage of technicians at these level in this field in the market to day
  • To address the national needs articulated through various Tanzanian Government technical and higher and education polices
  • To train more technicians in line with the industrialization policy of the phase five Government
