DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTONOMOUS MILK VENDING MACHINE

Q: Tell us about yourself. Who are you and what is your background? A: I am Jamal Akida (25), a Muslim graduate of the Dar-Es-Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT). I studied Computer Engineering and graduated in the year of study 2019/2020.I have extremely high attention to detail and love the challenges involved in technology (especially computerized systems) no matter how big or small – I also enjoy working as part of a team. Over the past four years, I have attended Industrial Practical Training (Field student) at different organizations where I used my knowledge to be a part in the design and implement software, hardware systems, and network configurations at the Institute of Judicial Administration (IJA) and TONTAN Technologies. Currently,...

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...

A Busy week

  A Busy week Hindu Katowa, It has been a very busy and tough week with sleepless nights.We are running out of time.So we are supposed to work as much as we can so we can finish our final prototypes and prepare ourselves for the next week’s final projects presentations.So our team is working on the Automatic Chest Compressor.   But before we made a final prototype we made two prototypes which were piston and gear based chest compressors.And the processes were as follow: We started on making piston based prototype in which we 3D printed the piston and circulating rods Then we cut all remaining parts on a laser cutter. After that we assembled the parts and completed our first…

Soldering is the core.

       PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) SOLDERING By Joseph, Soldering involves the process in which to or more metal components are joined together by melting and then flowing a filler metal into the joint-the filler metal having a relatively low melting point. In electronic components we use mostly solder wire.         LS

FINAL PRESENTATION AND DINE

   FINAL PRESENTATION It was the last week of our ipt period  we were preparing  for the final presentation of our final prototypes . also we were finalizing our final prototypes ready for presentation. At that day madam Julia organized camera men so they can come and shoot a video of us doing our final presentation. It was a very stressing day because at my side am not very confident to present infront of a camera. So the presentation started and it went great thanks to madam Julia then after that we were continuing to finalize our side projects while our fellow students were presenting . final preparation Then after the presentation was over , we started cleaning up the studio…

REVISIT TO THE DIT DESIGN STUDIO

REVISIT TO THE DIT DESIGN STUDIO Bwere, Daniel E. September 27th, 2020.   February 2020 So here I am prepping with my friends for the Lemelson Engineering Internship interview come summer 2020. I’m just in my headspace all-reaching for an internship position abroad, preferably at Rice University in the United States.  I got through with an internship position at Malawi. That’s still great considering the need for exposure I long for from abroad and I’ve never been abroad-at least in my grown-up awareness.  Here comes, Corona and stuck we are wherever we are. The insecurities and chaos brought about by the pandemic was and still is something none can fathom. Thus,  internships have to be conducted virtually. Unfortunately, at our…
