The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) has committed itself to increasing and strengthening its connections, collaborations and contributions in Africa and across the globe. As one of the largest contact university of technology in South Africa, our vision is ‘A people’s university that makes knowledge work’. To give effect to this vision, TUT has adopted the notion of engagement beyond borders to include a focus on African and international partners.
TUT values the internationalisation of higher education, and for this reason TUT has established collaborations with institutions and industry partners worldwide. International academic activities and programmes at TUT are steered to encourage advancement of strategic agreements aimed at enhanced bilateral, multi-lateral and regional cooperation in research, innovation and engagement.
TUT aims to extensively promote collaborations in the areas of research, innovation and engagement activities; develop research capacity through joint supervision, mobility programmes and exchange programmes; capacity building and development of knowledge.
Internationalisation at TUT is perceived as an opportunity to take local and indigenous knowledge to the international community, while at the same time harnessing international epistemologies.
The Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research, Innovation and Engagement is responsible for Internationalisation and Africa engagements.
