What to Study


Latest at VUT


There is an African saying that goes: “Those who have met will definitely meet again”. The universe simply has way of making you meet again.

It is with this in mind that VUT says goodbye to Sep Schraven and Erwin de Bruijn who were part of the first semester exchange programme from Fonty’s University of Technology in the Netherlands.

The students have said they have had a great time at VUT and would love to come back again someday. Even though they were taken out of their comfort zones and had to adapt to the culture of VUT and a new lifestyle, they claim everything has gone well and they have gained a lot to take back to their country.

They said that, above all, they would miss the friends they have made and thanked everyone for making their stay worthwhile.

Exchange students are identified by their institutions and their application forms get sent to the VUT’s International Office. These are then sent to the relevant Faculties for approval. Once the applications have been approved, the International Office finalises everything and arranges the visit.

The VUT Southern Gauteng Science and Technology Park celebrated youth day in style under the banner “Youth Entrepreneurship Day”. This event was initiated by the Public Relations Department which sees the importance of encouraging young people to become involved in changing their communities and their country for the better.

The purpose of the day was to bring together the youth of the Vaal to discuss opportunities that are there to empower and bring change in their lives. “The youth of 1976 united and stood up against a discriminatory and oppressive education system. As the youth of 2017 what are we uniting against?” asked Manani Hlongwane: Public Relations Officer. She and Lebohang Pitso: Marketing Consultant, were the programme directors of the day.

Mr Tshepo Mahanuke: Engineering Specialist, emphasised the importance of the day and how VUT SGSTP is playing a role in encouraging entrepreneurship and community empowerment. He mentioned that there are opportunities at the Science Park for people who are interested in education, business and science.

“Our offices are open to you and we would love to contribute to your better future,” he said while thanking merSETA for sponsoring the event.

Performances of the day included a play, “The Science Show Concept” by McubedH, music from Soul Renovators, Acatears and Pretty and poetry from Morongoe, Given and McubedH.

Mr Moeketsi Montshitsi, Public Relations Coordinator at Science Park, thanked everyone for coming.
