The Department of Electrical Engineering offers one of the strongest research and instructional programs in Tanzania and the region at large. Our key strength is our array of cross-disciplinary and team-driven projects. The integration of Electrical Engineering forms the core, with strong interactions that extend into Biomedical, Automation, Electrical and Hydro power, Electrical and Wind, Electrical and Solar, Renewable Energy Engineering, 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, Automation, Wind, Solar, Renewable and Telecommunication Engineering , 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.

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.

Academic staff 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.
