MUT ALUMNI Welcomes You!

MUT has more than 42 000 alumni spread across South Africa, SADC and a sizable number overseas. These alumni take pride in MUT and are prepared to play a pivotal role in the development of MUT. They know where MUT has come from and; like MUT’s founding fathers, have the vision of elevating the MUT brand to greater heights.

The Alumni Relations Office knows that alumni will be the longest serving members of MUT. The alumni are the lifetime members of this university. They give testimony to this University which arose in a township simply to provide access to African students in 1979 when there was no Technikon for them in KwaZulu-Natal.

Great strides have been made by the Alumni Relations office to:

  • Reconnect MUT alumni with the university.
  • Revitalise alumni engagements with their alma mater, MUT.
  • To make alumni Reinvest into MUT, their time and money.
  • To help alumni rediscover progress at MUT and how they could be a part of the developments within MUT

The Alumni Relations office has wide-ranging activities for alumni engagement as well as enabling MUT alumni to perform any of these 4R’s:

Reconnect | Revitalise | Reinvest | Rediscover

Calling on all MUT Alumni
Let’s turn the page and create a lasting legacy together!

Dear MUT Alumni,

As proud graduates of MUT, you have undoubtedly experienced the transformative power of education and the support from our University community. You are living proof that education is for the public good. It is for this reason that we are reaching out to you with an exciting opportunity to give back to your alma mater, in a manner that would make a lasting impact on MUT and the next generation of students.

The Department of Institutional Advancement is striving for ways to support MUT in its advancement endeavours. One of the ways we can achieve this is by tapping into the wealth of knowledge and expertise within our alumni network. We invite you to return and share your expertise by running short courses and/or offering consultancy services in partnership with the Alumni Relations Office (ARO).

Why you should get involved

While many alumni would love to support the Alumni Bursary Fund in a significant way, not everyone has the financial resources to do so. That should not mean that individuals with limited financial resources cannot give back to their alma mater. Your expertise in providing mentorship, skills transfer, training and development, and your professional success would make a difference to the professional journeys of our current students and members of our community. Your involvement will contribute to the alumni resource mobilisation project aimed transforming the student experience for the better.

Nature of opportunities available

Short Courses: Consider teaching a short course or conducting a workshop in your area of expertise. This can be done in person or online.

Consultancy Services: Offer your consultancy services to meet and support real-world challenges.

Masterclasses: Host Masterclasses on relevant topics or participate in panel discussions and provide mentorship throughout the class.

We are in this together

The ARO is aware that this is an exciting and yet intimidating endeavour to undertake, which is why the ARO will be available to support you every step of the way in this journey. This is an opportunity for you to create a living legacy at MUT and we will be there to give you the support you need to make it happen.

To participate, please fill in the online form ( or contact our Alumni Relations Office at or  031 907 7510. We would be happy to discuss potential collaboration opportunities and tailor your involvement to your schedule.
