What to Study


Latest at VUT


A high-profile South African delegation visited Germany from 29 May to 2 June to get a better understanding of the country’s energy revolution project “Energiewende”.

The tour was organised around three main questions:

1. How is Germany promoting the energy revolution and what is the overall approach from the local to the national level?

2. What are concrete policies and support programmes that are setting the right equilibrium between creating competitive pressure in businesses to innovate as well as supporting businesses and support institutions to jointly develop better solutions?

3. How do the supporting science- and industry institutions develop newly required technological capabilities to remain relevant to the private sector and how do they test and experiment new ideas to identify possible context-related solutions?

The energy revolution and the expansion of the renewable energy sector offer new economic growth by opening up potential for research, technological innovation and management capabilities.

A society, region or industry can develop and adopt institutional technological capability to better serve a nation using successful and proven models from countries such as Germany in the alternative energy efforts for a new dispensation.

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.
