Historically, DIT was established in 1997 by the Act of Parliament, "the DIT Act No.6 of 1997" to replace the Dar es Salaam Technical College, which had a long history of technical training in Tanzania. This history dates back to 1957 when its predecessor; the Dar es Salaam Technical Institute was established with the main task of providing vocational training in the country.

Hongereni kwa mfumo uliopo pale kwamba hakuna kum award mtu diploma au degree kama hatafanya project mwaka wa mwisho na kuvumbua ama kutengeneza kitu ambacho kitaisaidia jamii kulingana na kozi unayosoma na ukae mbele ya lecturers na kuitetea project yako na kama umecopy na kupesti lazima wakurudishe ukajipange upya la sivyo habari ya kuwa awarded degree ama diploma unaisahau!

Pia kumbe wanafunzi wa dit ndo wameprogam taa za barabarani za hapa dsm!

Hongereni vijana.
