The HEMIS Office reports to the Director: Institutional Planning.


The office consists of one HEMIS Co-ordinator, Ms Arina Wessels, and three HEMIS Admin officers, Ms Anthea Karra, Ms Xolelwa Olayi and Mrs Jacqueline Thomas.


The HEMIS office is responsible for the updating and checking of the academic structure of the University and as such has to keep a close eye on all approval documentation and compliance with the University’s PQM (Programme Qualification Mix). The HEMIS Co-ordinator liaises with the Director: Institutional Planning with regard to all applications under the new HEQSF.


The office is responsible for the submission of HEMIS information to the Department of Higher Education and Training on a regular basis to enable CPUT to claim its state subsidy - the bulk of its annual income. The office is also involved in supplying information for various other purposes, e.g. research, management information, and ad hoc requests from students, staff and outside agencies.


To enable the department to fulfill its role in the University, it relies heavily on the co-operation of staff in different departments of the University, e.g. Faculty Offices, Human Resource Department, Residence Department, Facilities Management, CTS-department, and all lecturing staff for the completion of timetables and timesheets.
