About DURBAN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY
DURBAN UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY – ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT – IT ACADEMY
DUT is an academic institution that excels in teaching, research andÂ community engagement. These activities are pursued through closeÂ interaction with the institutionâ€™s environment: industry, business, andÂ the community. DUT cultivates and nurtures these links, and in doingso, strengthens its ties with industry.
Enterprise Development Unit (EDU) by extension, undertakesÂ commissioned research and projects, and offers a variety of trainingÂ through short courses, learnerships and mentorship. EDU hasÂ established a presence by providing excellent services to its clientsÂ in South Africa and abroad. We have undertaken research onÂ behalf of such clients as the Electoral Commission (IEC) and UnitedÂ Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Our community outreachÂ programmes include an interactive multimedia workshop SafeÂ Internet for Parents which engagingly informs parents of thisÂ phenomenon.
Through EDU, DUT is able to play a key role in skills development, areasÂ that are crucial for employment creation and growth in the country.Â We fulfil the needs of both learners and the business community, byÂ identifying the gap between formal education and the realities of theÂ working world. We then develop customised programs for learners,Â which meet these requirements conveniently and affordably.
