TUT Shines Through Partnerships with German Universities



TUT Shines Through Partnerships with German Universities

The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) enjoys increased institutional visibility, broadened global engagement and a growing pool of enduring strategic partnerships and collaborations, as demonstrated by the number of strategic agreements signed with the Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm, Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences, Excellence Lab: Africa-Bavaria and industry partnerships in Germany.

Effectively managing these agreements is of utmost importance, as is robust monitoring to prevent them from becoming dormant.

“It is imperative for TUT to provide opportunities for new enterprise initiatives and projects as the higher education environment changes and develops, according to Dr Vathiswa Papu-Zamxaka, the DVC of Research, Innovation, Internationalisation and Postgraduate Studies.

The partnerships with universities in Germany are a perfect example of our well-managed, vibrant and effective collaborations.
