It is very difficult to become an engineer in Tanzania as a woman. Norway has supported a project to educate and recruit more women engineers in Tanzania. The result is: More than doubled the number of female engineers since 2010
(October 21, 2009) Jenna Davis, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford, presents current research on the connections between water, sanitation and child mortality in Tanzania along with potential engineering and social approaches to alleviating associated health problems, conducted with financial support from the Woods Institute for the Environment.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Tuesday inaugurated a 135 million US dollar Kigamboni Bridge built by Chinese in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam, saying the bridge will contribute to the country's economic growth. The 680 meter-long bridge, the first of its kind in east and central Africa, connects Dar es Salaam's business district to Kigamboni creek. The bridge, measured 32 meters in width, has six lanes, three in each direction. It also has two pedestrian and cyclist lanes with a width of 2.5 meters, one on each side. The Tanzanian President thanked China for the excellent job done by China Railway Construction Engineering Group in a joint venture with China Railway Major Bridge Group.
The Tanzanian President John Magufuli laid the foundation stone for a 300 kilometre railway that will link two of the country's major hubs. He hopes it's the start of a project that will see all of Tanzania's cities linked by rail, with the goal even to build a network spreading across East Africa and beyond.

During the summer of 2012, Oregon Tech faculty and student volunteers returned to Hanga, Tanzania to begin phase 2 of the water filtration system. This video depicts the efforts of those men and women who worked on the second phase of the slow sand water filtration system. Nine people from various walks of life engaged in three weeks of work to further support the Oregon Tech EWB mission in Hanga. This was their experience.

TANZANIA -- Africa Report speaks to Raymond Tenga of Temso Engineering who is both an entrepreneur and engineer. He aims to support Tanzania through his brick manufacturing business.Temso Engineering manufactures recycled and dicarded material in Tanzania. In order to get his company off the ground, Raymond approached GroFin, an investment organisation who provide finance to small and medium enterprises facing resistance obtaining capital from traditional sources of funding.
Tanzanian chemical engineer Dr. Askwar Hilonga invented a water filtration system using nanotechnology that turns contaminated water into safe drinking water. He rents the filters out to local shop owners at an affordable rate so even the poorest Tanzanians can get access to clean water. Shot by video journalist Sophie Tremblay for AJ+.

A short documentary of 2016 on our FLIGHT TRAINING facilities at Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
This year OIT's Engineers without borders chapter went to tanzania to pour the concrete slab of a sand filtration system, and check on wells that were built last year. This video is a picture of the village, highlighting the villagers daily life. It shows the need for wells, and how villagers use their water.
Just days after Tanzania and Uganda signed a pact to pave way for the construction of the Tanga-Hoima oil pipeline; procedures are now underway to deploy contractors for engineering, procurement and construction management services. Total East Africa Midstream,has invited interested companies to secure the job through a competitive tendering process. The move signals the start of implementation of the project after the two countries inked the a deal late last month. The 3.55bn US dollar Intergovernmental agreement is for the construction of a 1,443-kilometre pipeline to transport crude oil from Hoima in Uganda to Tanga Port in Tanzania.

Access to water is a critical issue in the Longido District of Tanzania. The Sprott School of Business, Environmental Engineering and School of Industrial Design will be partnering in a unique interdisciplinary learning experience in 2014-2015 that will take students to the region to address this complex social problem. Working alongside with Project TEMBO the students were able to travel to Tanzania this past winter to meet with local leaders and conduct research. Fourth Year Industrial Design Students are presenting their final projects at the Carleton Exhibition (April 18, 2015 - April 21st, 2015).
