To build a nation-leading medical imaging department committed to the vision of the university by adopting smart innovative techniques and technologies in the fields of teaching and learning, research, engagement, administration, partnerships and collaborations.

CPUT is the only university in the Western Cape that offers the following BSc programmes in Medical Imaging: BSc Diagnostic Radiography, BSc Radiation Therapy, BSc Diagnostic Ultrasound and BSc Nuclear Medicine Technology. Our programmes strive to address the critical shortage of radiographers and ultrasonographers in the Western Cape and South Africa.

The aim of these four year professional degrees is to develop professionals who, in addition to demonstrating the knowledge and skills required in Medical Imaging and Therapeutic Sciences, have also gained experience in applying such knowledge and skills in the appropriate workplace context. Our academic programmes strive to instil a culture of independent learning from an early onset.
