KIITEC is a new technical institute dedicated to providing accessible, high quality instruction and technical experience to meet the needs of its students. KIITEC was created thanks to FTE (Foundation for Technical Education), a non-profit organization, funded by private donators. This project is realising in partnership with IngÃ©nieurs du Monde, a non-governmental organization accredited by the United Nations which continues to support actively this Institute. The vision of KIITEC is to become the leading education centre for Telecommunications, Electronics, and Computers within Tanzania and in the East-African region.
The general Tanzanian education system is mainly based on learning by memorizing but practical experience is lacking. The vocation of the school is to form real technicians capable to situate the problem and to repair all kind of electronic equipment (domestic and industrial, computers and telecommunication equipment). The international NGO which is called "IngÃ©nieurs du Monde" is in charge of, amongst other things, founding technical experts who are willing to teach in practical workshops on a voluntary basis for a few weeks.
