This is one of the earliest established departments of the Institute and has emphasis especially at this time when the Government has provided electricity almost throughout Zanzibar Islands. The department is divided into two programmes: Electrical Engineering and Electrical with Renewable Energy Engineering. Like with any other department at the Institute the programme of study is divided into two major parts: Visual tutorial and industrial training. Electrical Engineering Department offers ordinary Diploma (Level 4-6),Bachelor Degree (NTA Level 7-8) and several courses in vocational education and training.
Despite being one of the oldest departments of the Institute, still a lot of students prefer to take electrical and electrical with renewable energy engineering courses especially female students.
Future prospect of the department is to establish Electro-Mechenical Engineering courses which will include Electrical and Mechenical measurements and maintenance of equipments used in different automation
