Throwback Thursday!!

Did you know the current College of Engineering and Technology (CoET) originated from the then Faculty of Engineering (FoE)?
FoE was established at UDSM in 1973 with the support of the Government of the Federal Republic of German through the then technical cooperation agency Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) following a cooperation agreement between the governments of the United Republic of Tanzania and Federal Republic of Germany in 1971. FoE was established to provide education and advanced training for engineers, to perform research in the interest of exploitation of natural resource and to provide expert professional services to industry, government, private organizations and the general public.

An immediately past Director of the National Institute of Adult Education (IAE) in Tanzania, Mrs Lambertha H. Mahai is the UDSM Alumna of the Month’ for September 2021.

She graduated in 1975, B.A in Political Science and Languages. After completing her degree programme, she was posted to Zanaki Girls Secondary School in DSM for a teaching career from 1975-1983 and rose to headship of the Kiswahili Language Department. In 1983, she joined the Institute of Adult Education in DSM, where she assumed the role of a tutor (lecturer) and researcher in the Institute’s diploma and advanced diploma courses. Not infrequently, she would even play secretarial roles at Management and Council meetings to ensure accuracy of reporting. This was in a rare spirit of making the Institute which had begun as a modest section of the extramural department at Uganda’s Makerere University College in 1960 more dynamic and competitive.

She pursued her Master’s degree in Development Studies at the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague in the Netherlands. In 1987, that she was promoted to the position of Head of the Mass Education and Women’s Development Department at the Institute. Previous to this finality, she had been trusted with the position of Deputy Director in charge of academic affairs and Chief Academic Officer (2000–2003). From June 2014-May 2017, Mrs Mahai served outside her home area of jurisdiction also as Chairman of the Board of the Tanzania Library Services. She formally retired in 2017, at the level of Director of the Institute and also Senior Lecturer (according to the revised NACTE schemes of service).
It is on record that Lambertha was a first female head of the institution. Her working and service record is confirmed by several recognition awards, including ‘Best Worker Award’, two times at departmental and institutional levels (1992,1999) and once at national level as IAE Deputy Director (2000). She also was selected for a ‘National Leadership Award’ as a chief executive officer by the Research, Academics and Allied Workers Union (RAAWU), among 150 higher learning Institutions (2008).
