HADEBE SHARES HIS PASSION OF BEING A PRODUCT OF DUT
For Mthokozisi Hadebe, choosing the Durban University of Technology (DUT) to be his academic home is one of the best decisions of his life.
Even though his academic journey in obtaining his diploma took him four years to complete, he proudly graduated with his National Diploma in Architectural Technology in 2013.
However, Hadebe’s first year of study was a sad start, with the death of his mother in the first month of his study. He continued studying despite his personal loss, and with the guidance from his lecturers who believed in him. He is also grateful for the financial help that he had received from the Office of the Premier of KwaZulu-Natal during his undergraduate years.
