We are a township located University, one of only six universities of technology in South Africa.  Our founder Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi gave the promise in 1979 – when we opened with just fifteen students – that our mandate would be to transform the lives of the disenfranchised.

The theme of transformation is still our cornerstone.  We are not only transforming the lives of the people who live in Umlazi, but we are also transforming ourselves into a university that can take its place among the best technology institutions in the world.

So welcome to Mangosuthu University of Technology, where our brightest and best can find the future they want.
