KHAN’S RESEARCH ON #FEESMUSTFALL TWITTER CAMPAIGN GAINS RECOGNITION IN PARLIAMENT
One of the DNA strands of the Durban University of Technology (DUT) is engagement. According to the DUT-strategic plan 2.0, for engagement to be successful, the University has to develop dynamic interfaces between itself both inside and outside the University. At the core of all engagements must be the core functions of the University – the generation of knowledge, its dissemination, its application and continued use.
In line with that, DUT students are constantly doing research which is impactful on society and obtaining recognition both locally and internationally.
More than 150 schools visited the Durban University of Technology’s (DUT) Open Week 2018 at the Fred Crookes Sports Centre, Steve Biko Campus last week.
During the Open Week, 8901 pupils attended the event, and most of them said that the DUT staff at the exhibition stalls for various programmes, were extremely helpful. For some pupils, they were the first in their family to have an opportunity to further their studies at University level.
There were more than 60 Durban University of Technology (DUT) students that had participated in the Spelling Bee Championship which took place on 17 May 2018 at Mansfield Hall, Ritson Campus. This is an inter-residential competition open to all DUT residence students.
This competition has grown significantly since its inception in 2013, where only first year residences were allowed to participate, and it has grown to a point that all DUT residences are allowed to participate.
