New Delhi (New Delhi)-According to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Tanzania could be a hub for technology education in Africa.The government is considering an offshore campus of IIT Madras in Tanzania as part of a strategy to ensure that the country's top engineering institutes have a presence on the international stage.On Friday, Mr Pradhan met Lela Muhamed Mussa, Minister of Education and Vocational Training, Zanzibar.He suggested the establishment of a vocational center in Zanzibar.

IIT in Tanzania could be a hub for technology education in Africa.I reiterated India's commitment to the development of the project and emphasised its desire to establish a 21st-century training center in Zanzibar.Leela Muhamad Musa has been given all of the necessary assistance to make our education and skills development stronger, as well as for Tanzania and Zanzibar's prosperity.In India, the National Education Partnership (NEP) is opening up new avenues for learning.

Several IITs have been asked to establish their campuses in the Middle East and South Asia by Middle Eastern countries.Early this year, the Centre had formed a committee led by Dr. K Radhakrishnan, the chairperson of the IIT Council standing committee committee.According to the board, there could be more than one method of creating an institute, for example, campuses by individual IITs, a coalition of IITs and HEIs, or an individual or group of IITs in collaboration with a reputed host university.Since the old IIT Act does not explicitly specify the possibility of establishing an IIT outside of the country, the panel has suggested a generic scheme like IIT, NIT, or IISER, in which a series of institutes can be established.
