History of Dar es salaam Institute of Technology | DIT
The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) was established in 1997 by Act of parliament as a government institution to replace the Dar es Salaam Technical College, which had provided technical training in Tanzania since 1957.
The objective of establishing the Dar es Salaam Technical Institute in the 1960s was to provide vocational training in the country. The Technical College was founded in 1962 to provide technical secondary school education and Technical Assistant training.
The London City and Guilds Training Program was the primary objective of the College. The OTD (Ordinary Technician Diploma), which took two-and-a-half years to complete, was established in 1964 to enhance the College’s contribution to national technical manpower capacity building.
Currently, the institution has three (3) campuses which are; Dar es Salaam Main Campus, Mwanza Campus in Mwanza region and Myunga Campus in Songwe region. The institute offers more than twenty-nine (29) science, engineering and vocational training programs leading to Basic Vocational Certificate, Standard Diploma, Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Technology and Master’s degree programs.
