General Studies Department


Initially the General Studies Department (GS) was purely a supporting department to the Engineering fields offered at Arusha Technical College but today apart from offering cross-cutting courses, it is also a full fleged department recognized by NACTE.The GS Department now offers a three-year program leading to Ordinary Diploma in Laboratory Sciences and Technology. The three years cover courses for
Basic Technician Certificate in Laboratory Sciences and Technology (NTA Level 4),Technician Certificate in Laboratory Sciences and Technology (NTA Level 5), and Ordinary Diploma in Laboratory Sciences and Technology (NTA Level 6).

Laboratory Science and Technology Students performing an experiment in the Chemistry Lab

The GS produces laboratory technicians who are well equipped to work in the secondary schools laboratories as well as in industries.As a supporting department, the GS offers subjects that are cross-cutting and fundamental to engineering. The cross-cutting modules offered by the GS Department include: Advanced Mathematics, Physical Sciences,Communication Skills, and Entrepreneurship & Development Studies. 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 Department’s 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 Bachelor’s degree course in Laboratory Sciences and Technology. The General Studies Department currently has 19 qualified teaching staff and 3 Laboratory Technicians; furthermore it is looking forward to employing about 20 more staff in the academic year 2014/15. Courses offered by the General Studies Department Note that while NTA Level 4 and 5 of the academic year 2014/15 will use the re-viewed curricula, NTA level 6 will continue with the old one as we phase it out. The following are the contents of the reviewed Curriculum:
