The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) is a public university in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The Institute was established in 1997 to replace the Dar es Salaam Technical College, which had a long history as a technical training institution in Tanzania. The Dar es Salaam Technical College equally grew out of the Dar es Salaam Technical Institute, which had been established in 1957 with the main task of providing vocational training in the country. The Institute later expanded its scope to offer technical secondary school courses and training for Technical Assistants before it was upgraded in 1962 to become the Dar es Salaam Technical College (DTC), the first formal technical training institution in the country. Over the years the DTC grew to meet the needs of the everchanging technological landscape. However it was observed that the constantly evolving competitive environment was ill-suited to accommodate the DTC, and so a new institution was greenlit – one  that would effectively address current technological developments, provide competitive academic outputs in terms of quality technical training, applied research and expertise services to the community. The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology was therefore established in 1997 to realize that aspiration, with campuses in Dar es Salaam, Mwanza and Mbeya.

The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology ranks 19th in Tanzania, according to Webometrics’ ranking of African universities. True to its mission to provide competence based technical education, DIT has established itself as a major research force – the institute counts several ongoing research projects geared at technological advancement but also community development, and the economy as a whole. Some of these projects include enhancing forests conservation programmes, boosting research, technological development and innovation in Africa, developing drug management tools to facilitate drug supply and management in health centres, creating a comprehensive and equal access to health services in Tanzania, with Bunda and Serengeti Districts as pilots. The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology counts over 4000, with an envisioned 6000 students by 2021.

The Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology offers facilities and services to accommodate its university community and provide a conducive academic environment. Student accommodation is handled by DIT, although the rooms are limited and so students are encouraged to look for private accommodations. The Institute provides meals to students in a dining hall located on campus. The Institute has a Health Care Unit for students, staff and their families.  The Unit provides outpatient services to NHIF members and on cost sharing basis to non-NHIF members and may refer to other hospitals if necessary. Students are encouraged to bring with them NHIF cards and for non-members a special health insurance package for students has been introduced by the NHIF.  The Institute also counts several research, engineering and mechatronics labs to serve the student population.

Dar es Salaam is the former capital and the most populous city of Tanzania. It served as the capital city of Tanzania from 1961 to 1973, having been the administrative and commercial centre of the region as far back as the 1900s. Dar es Salaam went through a tumultuous period of growth between 1973 and the late 1990s, before finally emerging in the 2000s as one of Africa’s leading cities. It experienced rapid urbanization rates as businesses opened and flourished, leading to growth in the construction sector. The city is divided into five administrative districts, all governed by municipal councils. Dar es Salaam experiences a tropical wet and dry climate, typified by hot and humid weather throughout the year. There are normally two rainy seasons in a year, from April to May and from November to December. Average temperatures range from 20.9 degrees Celsius to 30.7 degrees Celsius. The total population of Dar es Salaam is just over 6.5 million people. It is Tanzania’s most important city as far as business and government are concerned, although it is largely dependent on agriculture for employment. It is characterized by high concentrations of trade and manufacturing, compared to other parts of Tanzania. It is also home to the country’s only stock exchange.

In addition, it boasts a shopping mall, a large fish market, a Central Business District spread across several wards and even a natural harbour. Dar es Salaam is one of the hubs of the Tanzanian Transportation system, with several main railways and highways originating in or near the city, thereby providing convenient transportation for commuters. Tourism is a key attraction in Dar es Salaam, with the town boasting two museums, botanical gardens, and several beaches. The Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve is a popular spot for day trips from the city. The Udzungwa Mountains National Park offers breathtaking views and friendly local guides for bold and adventurous travellers. As the educational centre of Tanzania, Dar es Salaam is home to several higher education institutions like the University of Dar es Salaam, Kampala International University in Tanzania, Tanzania Institute of Accountancy, the Institute of Finance Management, Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology, College of Business Education, the National Institute of Transport and Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences. The wealth of infrastructure and facilities could easily convince students to study in the City.
