CPUT graduates from across Zimbabwe are set to meet in Harare this week for the launch of the first-ever Alumni chapter in the country.

The event will be hosted by Vice Chancellor, Dr Prins Nevhutalu, who is urging all Zimbabwean alumni to engage with and support their alma mater.

Alumni officer Francois Jooste says the launch is sure to be a fun-filled celebration and an opportunity for old friends to reconnect, network and build community.

“We’re extremely proud of the accomplishments of our graduates and the contribution our alumni make to their chosen professions, communities, and beyond. As we celebrate our tenth birthday as a merged institution, there’s never been a better time for our alumni, old and new, near or far, to help us position the CPUT as a world-class, socially-responsive university that embraces the cutting-edge of technology.”

The launch kicks off at the New Ambassador Hotel in Harare at 11:30am for 12h00 this coming Saturday 15th August and will be followed by lunch.
