Our key strength is our array of cross-disciplinary, team-driven projects. The integration of Electrical Engineering forms the core, with strong interactions that extend into Biomedical, Electronics and Telecommunication engineering programs.

Each year, top students from across the country are attracted to the Electrical engineering department  programs and Arusha Technical College by the excellence of the teaching staff, facilities and hands on skills; the breadth of educational opportunities in Electrical, Biomedical,  and TelecommunicationEngineering , and location wide; the proximity to the vibrant Arusha with its touristic environment. The department's close ties to the industry, coupled with its commitment to engineering research and education, ensure that students get a rigorous, relevant, and broad education.

Academic staffs at our department are committed to research at an acceptable level, informed and creative teaching, and the creative desire to excel.Unlike many institutions of similar stature, regular staff teaches the vast majority of our courses, and the most exceptional teachers are often also the most exceptional researchers.
