Govt sets up textile institute

The Tanzanian government, in its efforts to boost the textile industry of the country, has established a textile engineering institute at the University of Dar Es Salaam (UDSM). The institute would see to it that the cotton produced in the country gets better value propositions.

The institution will start admitting the students in September this year.

Tanzania Gatsby Foundation, which is the main financer of the programme, has provided sponsorship to eight members of the UDSM College of Engineering and Technology (Coet) to attend the Masters and Doctorate degree level courses at Manchester University in United Kingdom, so as to enable them to set up the faculty.

The government, in June 2010 provided a nod to start two undergraduate programmes at the institute. The programmes include Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Textile Design and Technologies.

For the first year, the institute would enrol 15 students in each of the two courses, and would be managed by 11 employees three of whom were appointed in July 2010.
