DIT Mwanza campus continues to serve societal needs and excel in academics. In the new academic year 2020/21, I am pleased to inform you that, we will introduce another three years leather-based program, Ordinary Diploma in Leather Processing Technology, leading to a National Technical Award (NTA Level 6). This adds up to the existing leather-based program, Ordinary Diploma in Leather Products Technology, Ordinary Diploma in Science and Laboratory Technology, and short courses, Leather Craft Tanning, Basic Shoe Making, Leather Goods Making, and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
To further spearhead the realization of Tanzania's industry economy, DIT Mwanza campus has introduced National Vocational Education Trainings in Footwear and Leather Goods Technology, Laboratory Assistant, and ICT, leading to National Vocational Awards (NVA Levels 1 - 3). All courses have been revolutionalized by adopting a teaching factory approach, whereby training is interactively linked to real-life factory/industrial businesses. In addition to that, we continue to support the Tanzanian hides and skins derived industries to leather products development and manufacturing.
