MUT has introduced a digital register system for all that enter the gates. Samukelo Mrafa, Desktop Support Administrator at MUT, said the new technology will speed up the process of screening everyone entering the university and keeping records of those who enter.  “The new system captures the most vital information like surnames, identity document numbers, the staff member’s department, etc. Staff and visitors will have to scan the required identification on the device. This will eliminate the need for staff and visitors to fill in the paper register when they enter,” said Samukelo. Staff are requested to carry their staff cards at all times.  The driver’s licence and new South African identity document can also be used. Samukelo said Protection Services staff will still take temperature at the entrance but staff are still required to do the self-check.
