True to his internationalisation’s strategic intent, Professor Marcus Ramogale, Acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal of MUT has once more set aside time to meet MUT’s guest Professor Pierre Dossantos-Uzarralde, International Relations Director at École Nationale Supérieure d’Informatique pour l’Industrie et l’Entreprise (ENSIIE). Professor Dossantos-Uzarralde is on a two-day visit to MUT to explore how MUT and ENSIIE could work together in a student-staff exchange programme that will open greater opportunities for both universities.

Professor Dossantos-Uzarralde was grateful to the Acting Vice-Chancellor for his presentation that provided the history of MUT, showed MUT’s differentiation and how MUT has developed its own academic identity, graduate attribute and student entrepreneurship programme.

“Vice-Chancellor, this is inspiring and resonates with the mission of my university. We seem to have synergies in having a core curriculum that has communication skills, computing, applied learning, and entrepreneurship”, said Professor Dossantos-Uzarralde.

The engagement with Prof Dossantos-Uzarralde has moved to a practical analysis of what both universities would like to achieve.
