Chuo cha Taifa cha Ulinzi - Tanzania


I am delighted to introduce to you this National Defence College - Tanzania Website.  Since NDC inception in 2012, it has developed into a unique College owned by the Ministry of Defence and National Service. It is a Higher Learning Institution, fully registered and accredited with National Council for Technical Education (NACTE). Thus, in addition to the prestigious symbol ’ndc’, the college has the autonomy and mandate to confer Master’s Degree in Security and Strategic Studies (MSSS) and Diploma in Security and Strategic Studies (DSSS) depending on the entry qualifications. These are noble but not easy tasks to achieve.

This Website provides information about the College, programmes, staff and administration to meet these expectations.  We draw your attention on the content of security and strategic studies training in both regular and capstone courses particularly on the emphasis on practicum aspect of the content of national security and strategy. 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the National Defence College - Tanzania. We at the NDC - TZ appreciate the honour entrusted upon us by our Nation and other Nations to be the mentors of national leaders.  Admittedly, we have been able to deliver because of your support. It is in this regard that I encourage you to  visit our college website and share your views on the present and future of NDC-TZ.

Wilbert Augustin Ibuge, ndc
