DUT STUDENT SCOOPS AWARD IN ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH IN SOUTH AFRICA
The third-year Environmental Health student from the Durban University of Technology (DUT) is flying the ‘green’ flag high for DUT in recognition for his contribution to ensure a clean and safe environment.
“I’m delighted to know that the field of Environmental Health is becoming increasingly recognized in South Africa and these kinds of awards will motivate and prompt students to achieve excellence in this vital field of study,” said the jubilant Nicholas Pillay, upon winning best performing student in Environmental Health in South Africa, recently.
A successful T20 tournament has seen the Durban University of Technology Cricket team move up the rankings to third place and also earned right-hand batsman and right- hand off-spinner Theesan Naicker, the ‘man of the tournament’ accolade.
The team recently returned from the University Sport South Africa (USSA) games in Kimberley. The DUT team, which is part of group A because of its outstanding performance, played against the likes of University of Zululand, University of Limpopo, Vaal University of Technology and Walter Sisulu University.
