Bachelor of Science in Energy Resources (BSc ER)
Bachelor of Science in Energy Resources programme is designed to prepare students for their professional work in Physics in industry, energy sector and physical environment. This programme provides knowledge and understanding of the physical aspects of nature in relation to dynamics and energy relationships and its dynamics with Mathematics to model the processes as well as practical experience in Energy Resources. The programme also trains students in problem solving and entrepreneurship in the related field. After completing this programme, the student should be able to work as a technologist in industry, do research in Energy Resources and related disciplines. Details of programme structure, showing courses codes, course names and their respective units are given under Programme Structure. It is important to note that all courses that appear as core courses are mandatory and not optional; hence students are required to take all core courses in this programme.
In addition to satisfying the minimum requirements of the degree programme at OUT, candidates must have:
(a) Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (C.S.E.E.) or East African Certificate of Education (Ordinary Level) or equivalent, with passes in FIVE approved subjects, one of which is Physics obtained prior to the sitting of the Advanced Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (A.C.S.E.E.) or equivalent.
(b) One of the following combinations of passes in Advanced Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (A.C.S.E.E.) or equivalent;
(i) Two principal Level passes (in appropriate subjects)
(ii) An appropriate equivalent Diploma/Certificate approved by the Senate of The Open University of Tanzania.
(c) A degree in an area related to Physics
Candidates who do not qualify under options I may register for Foundation Courses (OFC) offered by The Open University of Tanzania. Those who pass examinations set at the end of the course will be eligible for registration for this degree programme, if they have passed Physics and Mathematics.
Candidates with awards from other Institutions of Higher Learning will be considered on their own merit. These include a degree or an advanced Diploma in a relevant field.
Candidates with a Diploma in Physics of OUT are eligible to join the Energy Resource programme at the third level.
