Careers at DUT

Durban University of Technology (DUT) is located on the warm east coast of South Africa. It sprawls over seven (7) campuses in tropical and picturesque Durban, and in Pietermaritzburg, with its undulating hills that flow over from the Drakensberg Mountain. According to our ENVISION2030 strategy, DUT’s DNA has two strands, namely ‘people-centred and engaged’ and ‘innovative and entrepreneurial’. These are interwoven intrinsically by a number of double pairs consisting of ‘values and principles’ that bind our double-helix together. The extrinsic expression of our DNA is via The DUT-Way; which demonstrates our collective character and behaviour. The University’s ultimate goal is to contribute towards improving the lives and livelihoods of all its people, both internal and external. DUT consistently strives towards excellence and greatness in teaching-learning and in research-innovation; something that was been recognized recently when The Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings placed DUT within the top 500 of Universities in the world and within the top 5 universities in South Africa. The enactment of these internationally recognized strengths is demonstrated in our impactful engagement internally and externally in service of our localities, the region and the country at large.
