On several occasions while addressing the University staff and students, the Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Marcus Ramogale bemoaned the fact that no graduate should see themselves as job seekers but as work seekers, “there might be no jobs but there is plenty of work, our graduates would succeed if they focus on finding work,” said Prof Ramogale.

MUT research contributes to finding vaccine against Coronavirus

Mangosuthu University of Technology researchers published a peer-reviewed research paper on the feasibility of potential drugs against Coronavirus.  Dr Devashan Naidoo, Dr Taurai Mutanda, and Professor Akash Anandraj, all from the Department of Nature Conservation’s Centre for Algal Biotechnology (CAB), collaborated with their counterpart at the University of North Bengal in India to conduct a three months’ computational study on COVID-19.
