Mechanical and Automotive Engineering

Mechanical Engineering 

This is one of the first two departments at the Institute. It was established in 1969 with two sections - Mechanical and Automotive. A third section, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning was later introduced before automotive section was separated from them. The intake per year varies but the maximum intake in each academic year is 16 students. This is due to the number of machines available in the department. From 1980 to date girls students, even though in a small numbers are amongst the best graduates of the department. Some of the successful students from earlier years have joined the teaching staff and others are now working in industries, self-employed and organizations in high positions of responsibility.

 Automotive Engineering

This is the third Department to be established at the Institute, when Automotive section was separated from Mechanical Engineering Department to form a new department Automotive Engineering. The courses of this department are designed to provide the students with basic knowledge and skills to gain employment as a Motor Vehicle Technician, who is responsible for servicing, maintaining and repairing of large variety of automotive vehicles.

In January 2011 a modern Automobile workshop starts providing services to the modern cars having computerized systems. This workshop has been sponsored by the German Government through Non- Governmental Organization Partner-aid International Organization (PAI), PAMOJA an NGO from Zanzibar and KIST. With this modern workshop, students have an opportunity to learn and use their skills with modern equipment so that after three years of schooling they will be ready to be employed

The two departments were later joined to form a new department of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering. 

The department currently offer the following programs;

  1. Bachelor  Degree in  Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and (NTA- level 7-8) 
  2. Ordinary Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (NTA Level 4 – 6) 
  3. Ordinary Diploma in Automotive Engineering (NTA Level 4 – 6) 
  4. Ordinary Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with Oil and Gas (NTA Level 4 – 6)
