Abstract

The paper highlights the importance of architecture training and emphasizes on ability and sufficiency knowledge of the ‘would be’ architects to create sound built environment. Architecture training in Tanzania is preceded by Building Design training. A three year ordinary diploma training programme in Building Design started at the defunct Ardhi Institute (ARI) in 1976 to cater for the serious shortage of building designers in Tanzania. In 1981, ARI started a three years Advanced Diploma in Architecture and in 1988 a two year postgraduate diploma in architecture was launched to top up the three years undergraduate intermediate professional diploma training programme with an aim of imparting architectural knowledge at full professional level. In 1996 Ardhi Institute was affiliated with the University of Dar es Salaam and became a Constituent College of Lands and Architectural Studies (UCLAS). This constituent college was later transformed to Ardhi University (ARU) and started a five years Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) training programme. Single case study strategy was employed in carrying this research. Data collection tools used in this study includes retrieval of archival records, literature review, observation and photographic registration. The training of architecture in Tanzania has grown significantly from diploma to doctorate degree programmes through various academic researches. The need and importance of accreditation of architecture degree programmes with entrusted bodies has been revealed.
