Class of 1977

In 1977 Graduates in the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary two of them graduated their Master of Science degrees. These were Mr. J.K Samki (M.Sc. Agriculture) after having successfully completed his thesis in Soil Survey and Land Evaluation and Mr. A.B. Temu who did his M.Sc. in Forest Economics.

There were 118 1st degree holder graduates, 20 holders of B. Sc. Forestry and 98 pursuant of B.Sc. Agriculture. The B. Sc. Forestry class was unique in that it recorded a 100% success without any discontinuation or a repeat year case in the class, which had a single, and the first lady forester to graduate in Tanzania, the late Ms. Zabida Maregesi.

The Agriculture group consisted of a cocktail of direct entrant xform six leavers who were enrolled in 1974 and pursued a three-year B.Sc. programme, inservice mature certificate-holders who equally pursued a three-year programme and a larger group of diploma-holder students, who were enrolled in 1977 and graduated having followed a two-year special B.Sc. programme.

The both the two- and-three year degree programmes were built with two unique practical imparting skill-training sessions:

  • An annual ten week field practical session that was conducted in more than one station during when students interchanged stations. The stations to be visited by a given student were chosen to cover the widest range of practical skills.
  • The third year was earmarked for specialized training. These were identified as options. Options were initiated only in the Faculty of Agriculture. These were: Agricultural Engineering, Soil Science, Crop Science, Animal Science and Rural Economics.
  • Each final year student in was supposed to design, conduct and report on a self identified productionoriented field stationed or other wise project in which the required inputs and yields were recorded and economic analysis carried on. The production-data collection exercise was assessed. B, Sc. Agriculture students except those pursuing the Rural Economy option were obliged to undertake the exercise. The latter were provided with an equivalent assessment.

The 1974 B. Sc. Agriculture firstyear class brought about a different outlook from the gender balance point of view.

Contrary to previous years, which were characterized by having a very high male: female ratio (above 8:1), the proportion of male to female students was almost 2:1. This narrowed down further during the second year of study that had less 10 male students. This happened following their discontinuation from studies at the end of the 1974/5 academic year. Apart from narrowing the male: female ratio, the discontinuation caused panic in the campus, as it was the 1st time to observe such a high rate of failure.

Before that, discontinuation rate was virtually a rare phenomenon and when it happened only a student or two who were discontinued from the entire campus. This happened without any student launching an appeal as that never, ever existed.
