INTRODUCTION TO ARUSHA TECHNICAL COLLEGE
1.1 Arusha Technical College in Brief The institution which has become the Arusha Technical College (ATC), was established in 1978 jointly by the Governments of the United Republic of Tanzania and Germany, under the name of the Technical College Arusha (TCA). The College is located at the Central Business District of the Arusha City which is the Northern Tanzania’s 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 world’s great wildlife refuges including Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Tarangire. All these make the location of the College an ideal place for education, training and applied research. 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 Certificate (FTC) in the fields of Automotive Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Hidhway Eng/Transport Engineerin 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. This Establishment Order granted autonomy and elevated the status of the College to a higher tertiary education institution. Following elevation of the status of the College to a higher tertiary education institution and grant of autonomy, the College introduced award of the Ordinary Diploma in the above mentioned programmes and two additional programmes namely: Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering; Civil and Irrigation, Lapidary, Autoelectric and electronics Engineering and Laboratory Sciences and Technology. The College is registered and accredited by the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) to train technicians and engineers. Currently, the College is undergoing both administrative and Academic transformations

STRUCTURE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
6.1 Overall Structure Each programme has modules that spread over two semesters. Each academic year has two semesters. The first 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

STRUCTURE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES

6.2.1 Fundamental Modules They provide a range of basic skills, knowledge and principle appropriate for a graduate in all the fields 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 C ore Module 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, fields, 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 specific 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 later is carried out in the well equipped college workshops and in industries as industrial training. At the end of each academic year, students attend industrial training 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 working environment which he/she will experience after completing his/her studies.

STRUCTURE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES

6.4

Examinations a) xaminations include continuous assessment (tests, assignments, E seminars presentations, practicals or any other form of assessment specified in the study guide issued at the beginning of Semester) and end of Semester Examinations including practical where appropriate. b) ere shall be a written and, where the course demands, a practical Th examination during each end of semester for a course taught. c) iming of examinations shall be between 07.00 am and 10.00 pm any T day of the week including weekends. Approved public holidays and other days when the College is closed are excluded.
