Study at MUT

Why study at MUT?

Imagine studying in a unique semi-urban setting right in the heart of Umlazi Township, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. That’s what Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) offers. Not only is it located in a vibrant community, but MUT also boasts internationally recognised and fully accredited qualifications in the Faculties of Engineering, Management Sciences, and Natural Sciences.

Did you know that MUT started with just 15 students in 1979? Now, it’s home to over 10,000 students! What’s even more impressive is that we accommodate more than 60% of our students in both on-and-off campus residences. And if you’re wondering about commuting, our two campuses are easily accessible via public transport, including buses, taxis, and trains.

MUT isn’t just about academics. We are committed to giving students a holistic experience. From valuable academic support that ensures you stay on track, to leadership and entrepreneurial development programmes that prepare you for the real world. If you’re into sports, you’ll love the active sports culture. And if you’re passionate about giving back, there are plenty of community service opportunities. Plus, in 2014, MUT took a stand for student well-being by declaring the campus an alcohol-free zone.

So, why consider MUT? It’s a place where you can grow academically, personally, and socially in a supportive and dynamic environment.
