Mode of Training  

Our students enjoy training delivered by experienced local and international faculties in vast areas of the engineering fields. Every semester we have planned hospital visits and industrial excursions. Our students enjoy broad range of exposure to various areas of the engineering fields through excursions and existing infrastructures at our workshops, laboratories and industries within and outside the city.

Annually, students shall take industrial internship for ten (10) weeks where they may have access to modern facilities while mingling with industrial/hospital supervisors, through this approach our students easily link training at the college with actual applications in the workplaces.

Besides normal practical sessions, we also provide opportunities for students to undertake mini projects on the course of semester training to apply skills and knowledge obtained in specific modules in a respective semester.

With such training approach, we have built competent graduates who would serve in the industry as well as self-employment.

 Expected Competencies

Students undertaking training in Ordinary Diploma in Electrical an Biomedical Engineering are expected to acquire multiple skills ranging from installation, routine, preventive and corrective maintenance, construction, diagnosis, repairs and modifications of simple and medium scale electrical and biomedical systems to developing technical reports, written work procedures and installation guidelines.

On top of the above skills set, students undertaking our degree program will also be able to analyse and design electrical and Biomedical systems for industrial, commercial and Hospital equipment; specify materials, types of installations, production methods and quality standards; establish control on efficient functioning and safety of electrical and Biomedical systems, plan, organize and monitor maintenance and repair of electrical and Biomedical systems, and communicate clearly by applying ICT and other sciences in solving engineering problems.

Historical Background

Electrical Engineering began on the ATC Arusha campus more than three decades ago. The early days focused on ElectricalEngineering, for Full Technician Certificate until 2006. By 2007 Electronics and Telecommunications engineering programme was established and later on, in 2012 Electrical and Biomedical Engineering programme came onboard to Ordinary Diploma level.

The development of our national-class Electrical and Biomedical Engineering program followed naturally from the synergies between electronics, systems theory, computing, and human systems Biology. In 2016 the department established degree programmes and it has become one of the giant departments at ATC defined more by its bigger number of enrollment, intellectual approach to engineering problems than by particular technical solutions.

Current strengths in Biomedical engineering, Electrical, Electronics andTelecommunications drives many of our current research projects to focus on enormous societal challenges and opportunities such as Biomedical equipment, packaging equipment, telecommunication networks, security, and general health care. More than any other engineering discipline, Electrical Engineering department bridges the physical world and the semantic one, creating technologies to serve humanity.

 

Organizationally, the Department of Electrical Engineering smoothly integrates its high-class training with dedicated staff and extremely active and involves student groups. Our undergraduate programs recognize the daunting intellectual breadth of the field by offering a great deal of flexibility. These programs are accredited by NACTE (OD) and TCU.
