In order to develop textile industry in Tanzania, the government has set up the faculty of textile engineering at the University of Dar Es Salaam (UDSM), which will begin enrolling students in September this year.

Speaking to The Citizen on the cotton and textile development programme in Mwanza yesterday, Mr Ibrahim Seushi of the Tanzania Gatsby Foundation, the main financiers of the programme, said the faculty has been established to ensure that value is added to the cotton produced in the country.

He said the foundation has fully sponsored eight members of the UDSM College of Engineering and Technology (Coet) to attend training on Masters and Doctorate degree levels at Manchester University in United Kingdom, in order for them to spearhead the establishment of the faculty.
