Following a presentation made in relation to the CPUT Convocation Covid-19 Fund at a board meeting of the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences (FBMS), the fund saw a spike in staff donations.

A cohort of students from the Department of Biotechnology and Consumer Science have reason to smile - the Programme of Consumer Science: Food and Nutrition recently re-introduced Food Science practical classes for first-year mainstream and second-year Extended Curriculum Programme (ECP) students.

Excitement filled the room in the Cape Town Hotel School when scholars consisting of CPUT staffers, who are mainly women in academics, were recently awarded certificates for completing their SAP train the trainer and newly advance SAP S4 HANA courses.

Dr Siyanda Makaula, the National Review of Doctoral Qualifications Institutional Coordinator at CPUT, is optimistic that the University is ready to welcome Council on Higher Education (CHE) panel members who will be reviewing and ensuring that the institution meets the quality standards in the Doctoral qualifications.

The upcoming virtual site visit by the national review for doctoral qualifications panel will see CPUT providing evidence of acceptable practices and resources available to support the Institutional Self Evaluation Report (ISER), submitted by the University in April.  

As required by the Council on Higher Education (CHE), the Quality Management Directorate at CPUT, together with the Faculty Coordinators, have compiled the interviewees’ list ahead of the planned virtual visit from 19 to 22 October.

Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering lecturers, Dr Desiree Jaftha and Dr Lucrecia Valentine both recently graduated with a PhD in Commerce and Administration at Cranefield College of Project and Programme Management.
