South Africa’s University of Limpopo and Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa have joined Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) and Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) partnership.
The two South African higher institutions of learning say their decision to join the partnership (MUST-UTAMU) is driven by the collaboration to harness research and development on the African continent more broadly particularly through the already existing MUST-UTAMU PhD programme.
Over eighty (80) students have already been admitted to this PhD programme and the collaboration is aimed at giving support to these students. UTAMU vice Chancellor Prof Venansius Baryamureeba after signing a memorandum of understanding with the above institutions at the National Water and Sewerage Corporation International Research Centre in Bugolobi,
Old Port Bell Road last week said some of the students will even be able to graduate from the partner institutions in South Africa after their course of study.
