The College is located at the Central Business District of the Arusha City which
is the Northern Tanzanias centre of agriculture, commerce, trade and tourism.
Arusha City is also the Head Quarter of the East Africa Community and is the
central point in Africa between Cape Town and Cairo. It is surrounded by famous
mountains such as Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. In addition, it is the door
to the worlds great wildlife refuges including Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and
Tarangire. All these make the location of the College an ideal place for studying.
Part of the responsibilities of ATC at the time of its inception was to train
technicians for three years to the level of the Full Technician Certifcate (FTC)
in the felds of Automotive Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering,
Transport Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. In March 2007, the name
changed to the Arusha Technical College (ATC) through the Arusha Technical
College Establishment Order No. 78 as enabled by the NACTE Act No. 9 of 1997.

and introduced more Ordinary Diploma and Certifcate awards in various
professions namely: Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering; Civil
and Irrigation Engineering, Auto electric and Electronics Engineering, Laboratory
Sciences and Technology, Lapidary & Jewelry Technology , Computer Science and
Information Technology. Moreover, the College also introduced Bachelors degree
programme in Civil and irrigation engineering.
The College is planning to introduce new programmes namely; Bachelor of
Engineering in Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Laboratory Science and Technology
and Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics. Others are Diploma programmes
in Clinical laboratory science technology, Multimedia technology and Heavy Duty

CHAPTER 6
STRUCTURE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES
6.1 Overall Structure
Each programme has modules that spread over two semesters. Each academic
year has two semesters. The frst semester consists of 17 weeks and the second
semester consists of 17 weeks for classroom activities and 10 weeks for Industrial
practical training. Therefore the whole programme has a total of 44 weeks of study
for the fulltime attendance mode.
6.2 Curriculum Overview
6.2.1 Fundamental Modules
They provide a range of basic skills, knowledge and principle appropriate for a
graduate in all the felds of engineering as well as for the underpinning and effective
study of the main theme of the programme. They also provide a viable foundation
for further studies and lifelong learning.
6.2.2 Core Modules
Modules associated with the core studies provide the development of the main
theme of the programme. They broadly represent the main areas of activity in the
respective disciplines, and the in-depth treatment of them will enable graduate to
rapidly become effective technicians or engineers in the industries associated with the
discipline. These modules are taught with fundamental ones so as to enable students
gain an appreciation of the nature and complexities of real engineering systems. In
order to achieve an integration of these modules there will be considerable use of
mode of integration of laboratory, workshops, felds, lectures and assignment work.
In addition, case studies will be used in the module
6.2.3 Elective Module
Elective modules provide an opportunity for in depth study in specifc subjects to
level not possible in the core modules and thereby present a greater intellectual
challenge. Also they give students the ability to work within a multidisciplinary team/
task.

6.3 Mode of Training
The two major parts of training, the theoretical and practical parts carry almost
the same weight. The former part is conducted in the college class rooms while
the latter is carried out in the college workshops and in industries during visits. At
the end of each academic year, students attend Industrial Practical Training (IPT) for
ten (10) weeks. The main purpose of the industrial practical training is to give the
students a chance to apply what she/he has learnt at the college in industry and to
make him/her appreciate the real world working environment which he/she will
experience after completing his/her studies.
6.4 Examinations and assessment
a) Examinations include continuous assessment (tests, assignments, seminars
presentations, practical or any other form of assessment specifed in the study
guide issued at the beginning of Semester) and end of Semester Examinations
including practical where appropriate.
b) There shall be a written and, where the course demands, a practical examination
during each end of semester for a course taught.
c) Timing of examinations shall be between 07.00 am and 10.00 pm any day of the
week including weekends. Approved public holidays and other days when the
College is closed are excluded
d) The College use both internal and external examiners to assess students
performance

Automotive Department in Brief
The department offers Ordinary Diploma in Automotive Engineering and Auto
Electric and Electronics Engineering under the National Technical Award (NTA)
framework covering levels 4-6. These awards are competence based and designed
to testify that the holders possess the requisite skills and knowledge necessary
to fexibly apply competences in the automotive service, maintenance, repairs and
other relevant occupational sectors.
It is anticipated that the department shall bring in a new program Heavy Duty
Equipment Technology (HDET) engineering in the academic year 2015/16 and
thereafter contribute in preparing highly qualifed and skilled technical human
resource at the category of technicians to serve the growing mining and construction
sectors in the country and region at large.
The Automotive department has established Automotive Advisory Committee
which shall put together potential stakeholders from the Automotive industry
working with the ATC and provide them a platform to advise the department
on how to fll prevailing gaps between what is delivered by the programs and the
emerging technologies in the industry and which are relevant to the markets where
the graduates we are preparing are going to work.
The Automotive department supported by the College Management and external
partners is in the process of establishing e-learning for automotive technology
modules on the condition that the students will be ready to pay some agreed fees
and during pilot period shall remain optional to students. This is an opportunity for
us to teach and learn the latest developments in automotive technology by using
interactive animations and simulations to enable students learn faster, retain more
and come up and meet latest technologies.
Academic year 2014_2015 is the second year of implementation of the ATC
reviewed curricula in the department; this means that levels 4 and 5 shall be in this
implementation of the curricula.
The department is wishing all the best to our students and let them remember
that todays life in auto industry maintenance and repairs is full of things and to
stay ahead we need to achieve on many fronts by practicing multi-tasking using the
departmental motto that Deeds and Not Words in all of the activities they are
going to undertake.

7.2 Civil Engineering Department
This is one of the oldest and giant Departments in the College. It was
established in 1978. It offers various programmes leading to both Diploma and
Bachelors degree awards. In order to keep abreast with global technological
changes, training in the Department ensures that learners possess the necessary
competences in the world of work. Apart from the training activities, the
Department offers consultancy in the buildings and civil works whenever needed.
Applied research is another core function of the Department.
Civil Engineering Students in Practical Session off Class Hours
While the Civil Engineering Programme was introduced in the Department in 1978,
in the Academic year 2010/11 the Department introduced a new undergraduate
programme of Civil and Irrigation Engineering. A year later the Department
introduced a similar programme of Civil and Irrigation Engineering at Diploma level.
The civil and irrigation engineering programme is a multi-sector programme, which
is designed to train graduates who will serve both irrigation (agricultural) sector
and construction industry.
The Department has competent staff and well-equipped laboratories/workshops
and classrooms which enabling the smooth running of the training as stipulated in
the curricula. The Department also uses outsourced experts in areas which skills
are not available in the Department to ensure that students are getting what they
deserve.

In implementing the Civil and Irrigation Engineering Programme, the Department
works closely with Japanese advisors dispatched by the government of Japan through
its International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as part of cooperation between the
Governments of Tanzania and Japan. The College has constructed a new building in
its effort to increase students enrolment and acquire state of art laboratories and
equipment for civil and irrigation engineering programmes.

7.4 Electrical Engineering Department
The Electrical Engineering Department was established in 1978 with electrical
engineering being the sole discipline enrolling students for a three-year full
technician certifcate (FTC) course. This programme existed up to May 2004.
As from July 2005 to date the Department started implementing market driven,
modular, and competence based education and training (CBET) system replacing
former knowledge based FTC system. CBET, which is a three-year course focusing
mainly on learning outcomes that demonstrate competencies in knowledge and
practical skills that are career or task oriented, leads graduates to National Technical
Awards (NTAs) namely NTA Level 4 (Basic Technician Certifcate), NTA Level 5
(Technician Certifcate) and NTA level 6 (Ordinary Diploma) for frst, second and
third year respectively. A student is promoted from one level to another after
successful attainment of the requisite GPA and Grades.
Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Students in Practical Session. Behind them is Mr. Dan-
iel Schuster Biomedical Engineer from America Biomedical Technology Aid (BETA)
In 2007 the Department introduced another discipline, namely Electronics and
Telecommunication engineering hence boosting the enrolment of students in
Electrical Engineering Department.
In academic year 2013/2014 the Department introduced a third discipline on
Electrical and Biomedical Engineering. The objective of this programme is to train
highly qualifed technicians in this feld, who will be capable of diagnosing, calibrating

and repairing the sophisticated biomedical and electrical equipment in hospitals,
medical clinics and any health facility. Currently due to this lack of highly qualifed
technicians in biomedical engineering the percentage of defective equipment (which
are repairable) in most national hospitals and various health facilities scattered all
over the country stands at 80%.
In academic year 2015/2016 the Department will launch a bachelors degree in
Electrical Engineering.
The Department has adequate human and physical resources to run its programmes.
These include well equipped laboratories, workshops, classrooms, 28 academic staff
and 4 supporting staff.

The Department also utilizes its well-equipped science laboratories to provide
consultancy services to the community in the area of science practical lessons to
the neighboring secondary schools.
The Departments goal for the next 5 years is to establish new programs that are
required by the market. Currently the Department is developing a curriculum for
a new program for Diploma of Science with Education which aims at producing
science and technical teachers that will teach in the secondary schools with science
and technical specializations. In the academic year 2014/15, we anticipate to establish
a Bachelors degree course in Laboratory Sciences and Technology.
The General Studies Department currently has 19 qualifed teaching staff and 3
Laboratory Technicians; furthermore it is looking forward to employing about 20
more staff in the academic year 2014/15.
