Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department in Mbeya University of Science and Technology! Here you'll find all the information about the mechanical engineering and the wonderful program we have.

Mechanical Engineering Department is in the Institute of Science and Technology (IST), was established on 1st September, 1986, at the Inception of the Mbeya Technical College.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a wide-range of course in Automotive Technology, Foundry and Forging Technology, Fitter Mechanics, Refrigeration and air Condition, Manufacturing Processes, Mechatronics and Robotics Technology and Industrial Safety and Occupational Health.

Throughout its history, the department has provided a strong technical foundation to prepare students to meet the changing needs of industry and related technology. Most of the students, who graduate from Mechanical Department, end up taking leading positions in industry, academia and government, both in Tanzania and foreign countries.

Currently the Department Offers the Following Programmes

  1. Ordinary Diploma in Mechanical Engineering.
  2. Ordinary Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering.
  3. Ordinary Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Industrial Safety and Occupational Health.

Mechatronics Engineering is the new program in mechanical engineering, it is multidisciplinary field of engineering that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, electronics and control systems engineering.

Because Mechantronics brings together mechanical, electronics and computer engineering there are lots of job opportunities in manufacturing and production industrial.

This enables a student to know how to Design, service, maintain and repair the mechanical equipment, Pneumatic system, Hydraulic system and automation systems.

Mechanical Engineering with specialization in industrial safety and occupational health this program combine mechanical engineering and management of all operations and events within an industry, for protecting employees and assets by minimizing hazards, risks and accidents. The program has a number of modules which are trained by practical and theory to cover safety of personnel and equipments in manufacturing and production industrial.
