Welcome to Cardinal Rugambwa Memorial College

Welcome to Cardinal Rugambwa Memorial College

Cardinal Rugambwa Memorial College (CARUMCO) is a new institution established in 2019 recognized by National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) with registration number REG/BTP/108.

The college is owned by Bukoba Catholic Diocese having honored a name of the first Black African Cardinal and the Bishop of Bukoba His Eminence Late Cardinal Laurean Rugambwa who had a great vision of uplifting the black man from misery through Education. The college takes the place of Cardinal Rugambwa Memorial University College (CARUMUCO) which was a constituent college of the St. Augustine University of Tanzania.

In realizing the Colleges’s mission and vision, our college is bearing the  motto:  Higher Education for Sustainable Development. Our college recognizes that change is the major determinant in the process of planning and realization of sustainable development and education is only a spear to achieve that goal.

One of the justifications for having this college in Bukoba is the high demand for Technical Education in Tanzania today. As our vision is to be a premier technical institute in the regional distinction, we are also determined to produce graduates with advanced technical skills and competences who have been trained in entrepreneurship and soft skills and therefore capable of innovation and impacting sustainable development and self-reliance.



Cardinal Rugambwa Memorial College- CARUMCO, was established following the phasing out of CARUMUCO, the then Constituent College of St. Augustine University in Tanzania-SAUT, at the end of 2018/19 academic year.The main goal being to train highly skilled and competent youths and adult learners and impart entrepreneurship and soft skills to enable them to be innovative and to contribute to sustainable development and self-reliance. CARUMCO’s mission has three components namely : Pre-employment Training (PET), provision of ContinuingEducation and Training (CET) and value added services to industry, small holder farmers, cooperatives and government. We will remain focussed on the three components of our mission. However, given Tanzania’s position in the two economic blocks SADC and EAC, CET will feature more prominently in order to equip Tanzania’s workforce with up-to-date knowledge and skills to compete Regionally as a country. We train for Industry/self-employment and work with Industry. In the coming years we plan to introduce more technology courses in ICT, Engineering as well as courses in Hospitality Management. We also plan to develop all courses we are offering to Bachelor degree level, that is NTA levels 7 and 8, in order to provide more upgrading opportunities to our college graduates. To all our students and particularly the fisrt year students we say welcome to CARUMCO family, be ready to enjoy the best weather, the best learning environment and the cool Lake Victoria breeze. Take advantage of our Institutional courses like Social Ethics, ICT, Communication Skills and Entrepreneurship on top of the Technical courses of your choice. I can assure you, if you put your heart in your work, with CARUMCO the sky is the limit.
