IT Centre offers world class facilities


The Cape Peninsula University of Technology Information Technology Centre (IT centre) gives students access to world class twenty-first century facilities.

The R26 million IT Centre, which is based on the Bellville campus, was opened by the then Minister of Education, Kader Asmal, in 2002 after the institution (Peninsula Technikon at the time) identified Information Technology as a key outcome required in the curriculum of most courses offered on the campus.

The centre, which is the only one of its kind in Africa, is unique as it offers students both basic and advanced computer technology skills under one roof. The three-tier centre aims at enhancing students’ computer literacy skills.

The modern centre houses more than 1400 computers in modern laboratories which will be available to students 24 hours a day, seven day a week. Students have access to Internet and e-mail facilities, which are connected to the institution’s main network. The building is wheelchair-friendly and gives students and staff with physical disabilities easy access. A modern one-stop e-mail facility is located on the ground floor near the entrance. Students have access to a Writing Centre on the ground floor which could be utilised for external use especially to other academic institutions and organisations. Also on the ground floor, the centre has an Up-market Conference facility, which includes a Video Conference room for sixty people, a Lecture Theatre that can seat eighty and two breakaway rooms.

Facilities, such as the IT Centre, put CPUT on the world map in terms of technology and facilities offered to university students.
