The spirit of celebration is in the air at Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) as the University finalises its preparations for this year’s virtual graduation where 2812 graduands would be capped along with a record number of Master of Nature Conservation graduates.
Year 2021 will go down in the history of the University as no other! On 16 June 2021, the University launched its brand-new radio station. Mbali Mkhize, Senior Director: Marketing and Communications, said the web-based radio station was an added communication platform for the University.
When MUT Radio was launched on Wednesday, June 16, little did MUT know that it would be on the global map. Just on the launch day alone, there were 2150 connections and 99.67 stream uptime. MUT Radio listeners came from SA, Namibia, UK, USA, Zimbabwe, Netherlands, India, Ireland, Germany, and Canada.
First it was MUT Strategy 2025 that posited the role that the University needed to play in contributing towards the nation-building agenda and building social cohesion. Then, the upcoming launch of MUT Radio had to be delayed so that its impact will show how the youth of today needed to use its voice to transform themselves as well as the marginalised.
The MUT Radio Vuk’ubangene team got a shock of their lives after their show finished at 8h00 on the first day when Mrs Mkhize, Senior Director: Marketing & Communications rushed to congratulate them on a job well done.
On 9 June 2021, the Acting Vice-Chancellor & Principal of MUT, Professor Marcus Ramogale and members of the Executive Management Committee went to inspect the construction projects currently underway at the MUT Main Campus.
Amid the dire COVID-19 pandemic, some of the University students are doing well in their work integrated learning (WIL) posts. The Department of Cooperative Education at MUT has reported that one of the students, Mlamli Maka, a Survey Engineering student, is part of a team that is building a bridge that will connect Durban and East London in the Eastern Cape.
“Guard these laptops with your life.” This is what Dr Manyane Makua, Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Teaching and Learning, said to some of the 50 students that received laptops from the University’s Financial Aid Office on 17 June 2021.
