Mangosuthu University of Technology
We are uniquely located in a semi-urban setting at the heart of Umlazi Township, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) has distinguished itself as a diverse institution offering internationally recognised and fully accredited qualifications across the Faculties of Engineering, Management Sciences, and Natural Sciences. Opening its doors to only 15 students in 1979, MUT to-date has more than 10 000 registered students and accommodates more than 60% of its student population in its on-and-off campus residences. Our two campuses are on the public transport access route that can be reached through buses, taxis and trains.
MUT strives to offer students an unforgettable campus life by providing valuable academic programming, academic support services to enhance students’ progress, leadership and entrepreneurial development programmes, an active sports culture, and a sense of community service. In 2014, the MUT campus was declared an alcohol-free zone.
Our students represent all the nine South African provinces and beyond the South African boarders.
MUT identifies teaching and learning as its core business and therefore seeks to excel in academic learning and achievement
The vision of Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) is to be a pre-eminent higher education institution of technology that fosters socio-economic advancement through the scholarships of teaching and learning, applied research, technology development and transfer and community engagement.
Our mission is to provide advanced, technology-based programmes and services that are career- and business-oriented in the broad fields of engineering, natural and management sciences for the uplift of talented but mainly disadvantaged individuals. By so doing, the University shows its commitment to social redress. It contributes to creating an equitable and prosperous Southern Africa in which individuals have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
