    UAUT Founder and Chairman, Reverend Joshua Lee told journalists in Dar es Salaam that initially the university will focus on two academic units, engineering and business colleges, with generous scholarships for tuition exempt and free room and board for qualified students.“We invite all qualified candidates to participate in the cutting edge state-of-the-art educational experience,” Reverend Lee said.He noted that this is an opportunity for Tanzanian youths to apply for admission at the university that will offer the most promising future oriented undergraduate programmes with globally recruited lecturers.“Our academic programmes will impart students with practical skills through overseas internship and job training trips,” he said.
    For starters, the university will offer ten full scholarships for science students and similar number of scholarships for business students.
    There will be ten partial scholarships each for science and business students whereby qualifying students will be required to contribute as well. He said Tanzania needs to invest heavily in the education sector especially in business and science subjects, in order to become competitive in the world and attain sustainable development.“In the 1960s our country was at the same level as Tanzania today, but we are now totally different because of investing heavily in education,” he said. On his part, the Dean, College of Business Administration at the University, Prof Kyung-il Ghymn said their institution wants to contribute to the government’s fight against poverty, diseases and ignorance.“We want to significantly help government efforts in attaining meaningful development,” he said, adding that this can be easily achieved by proper higher education to youths. He said with globally recruited professors and internship programmes for students abroad, the university seeks to produce global leaders with compassion.UAUT will be unique in terms of academic and industry cooperation. Graduates will have the opportunity to start and own companies with the help of the University’s Techno Valley which will offer technical advice and use of equipment.Techno Valley, to be in operational in two years from now, will also act as a link between academics and real industry development agenda in the country. It will link industrialists in Tanzania and other foreign counterparts with a sole purpose of helping and pushing industrialization in Tanzania
