"Higher Education for Economic Transformation Project MUCE"

Higher Education for Economic Transformation Project MUCE

Higher Education for Economic Transformation (HEET) is a five-year project funded by the World Bank through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST), to promote higher education as a catalytic force in the Tanzanian economy. The project is designed to revitalize and expand the capacity of universities to contribute to key areas for innovation, economic development, and institutional relevance to the labour market. This is achieved through substantial investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure that facilitates modern and efficient teaching and research, as well as rigorous training of educators, researchers, and administrators to meet the highest standards.

Mkwawa University College of Education (MUCE) is one of the higher learning institutions in the country that implement HEET Project. Through this project, MUCE is constructing new infrastructure, rehabilitating its facilities and installing modern digital infrastructure for learning and administration. It is also reviewing its degree programmes by engaging the private sector, improving institutional management and gender-related issues and inclusive education. In addition, the project is supporting capacity building for master's and PhD studies for academic staff and short courses for administrative staff.
