Congratulations: New SPU Vice-Chancellor & Principal

Business Continuity Plans all in order

t might have been a tedious project last year when the Risk & Audit team collected data from office to office in order to prepare for the Business Continuity Strategic Plan, Crisis Communications Policy and Emergency Response Plan. 

Not a ghost town yet

First, it was an early recess for the University staff and students from 15 March 2020 to 18 April 2020, following recommendations by Dr Blade Nzimande, Minister of the Department of Higher Education, Science & Technology; and finally the most feared pronouncement “Lockdown SA” by President Cyril Ramaphosa so as to prevent South Africa from having thousands of COVID-19 cases, from 26 March to 16 April. 

MUT turns to technology to bolster communication during the lockdown

After a Senate decision to bring the recess period forward and a government decision to lockdown the country from midnight on 26 March to 16 April, MUT is now scheduled to re-open on 17 April 2020. Certain university services will continue despite the lockdown.

EMC moves to Microsoft Teams to beef up its online collaboration

The Lockdown of the Republic of South Africa has brought new creative ways to ensure that the country is not at a standstill. On Wednesday, just a day before the Lockdown, at a Special EMC meeting, Dr. Jerome Mabaso led a presentation for EMC on how leadership could continue collaborating and working smart during the Lockdown using Microsoft Teams. 

MUT Student fee handbook 2020

This student fee guide sets out the rules and regulations regarding student fees and is aimed at assisting students in understanding these rules and regulations and the payment options available to them so that their student fees are managed in a responsible manner. The University has to balance the increasing financial needs of students against the diminishing financial resources of MUT. These rules and regulations apply to all students registered with the Mangosuthu University of Technology.

The National Lockdown will begin at midnight on Thursday, 26 March, and will continue for 21 days
