Students

Introduction
Student organization is an organization within a university established by Tanzania Universities Act No 7 of 2005 section 49.

4) To perform duties and exercise all powers vested in or conferred on the Students Organization by or under any provisions of the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology Charter of 2013 and the subsequent amendment made thereon;
5) To act as an intermediary between students and the Institution Administration, the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and all other students’ sponsors, through the NM-AIST Administration;
6) To promote and maintain tranquility, democracy and co-operation among students of the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology regardless of their differences, nationalities and other diversities; and
7) To facilitate student’s participation in interesting national and international contemporary issues.
