Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) | Tanzania
The Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in Arusha is one in a network of Pan-African Institutions of Science and Technology located across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). These institutions, which are the proud brainchild of the late Nelson Mandela, envision training and developing the next generation of African scientists and engineers with a view to impacting profoundly the continent’s development through the application of Science, Engineering Technology, and Innovation (SETI).
The NM-AIST, which is accredited by the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) is being developed into a world-class research-intensive institution for postgraduate and post-doc studies and research in SETI. The training in SETI, however, incorporates appreciable doses of relevant business studies and humanities ingredients.
Thus the training curriculum also incorporates strong innovation and entrepreneurship features, and hence strong academia-industry relations are part of the NM-AIST’s development agenda.
