CLASSES- Electronic Design Workshop

Mr. Urassa at his desk Hello, I’m Philimon S. Urassa. I am a Telecommunications and Electronics engineer working at the Dar Es Salaam Institute of Technology as a tutorial assistant where I teach a basic electronics and electronics design workshop to Ordinary Diploma students. In the Design Studio, my students got the opportunity to design and implement simple electronics projects that help to solve real life problems and challenges. Through the availability of tools and machinery in the Design Studio, my students are able to come up with simple design and good looking products that can be applied in society for the sake of coming up with a solution. During the design learning process students were exposed to multiple rapid...

MAKING THE MOST OF IT

Sandra (LEFT) and DIT Design Studio Admin Assistant Aziza (LEFT) My name is Sandra Sommi, I am a third year student studying a Bachelor of Computer Engineering at the Dar es salaam Institute of Technology. My team and I were assigned the task of designing an automatic unmanned robotic system by our instructor, Dr. Simbeye as part of our course - Robotics and Intelligent Systems.  The primary motive behind this project is to design and fabricate an automatic robotic system that will operate automatically without any human intervention. The original idea was to implement an automatic robotic arm that will perform pick and place functionality. But later as a group we came up with the idea that the robotic system...

Expansion 3DP – A STUDENT BUILT 3D PRINTER

^Our team and the completed Expansion 3D We are a group of 5 final year Bachelors students in the department of Computer Studies. We are genuinely interested in everything that deals or works with computers, ranging from networking, electronics and software development. During the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021 around mid-December, we decided to build a 3D printer as part of our coursework assessment for a core module named Robotics and intelligent systems. Having no prior experience in building a 3D printer nor a significant knowledge of its operation, we first had to understand how CNC (Computer Numerical Control) laser or plasma cutter worked as a means of building a fundamental background that could ease the understanding and...
