The Durban University of Technology’s International Education and Partnerships (IEP) Directorate recently hosted a presentation about the Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS) at the University’s ML Sultan Campus.
The Munich University of Applied Sciences, Germany, was founded in 1971 and is the largest university of applied sciences in Bavaria, and the second largest university of applied sciences in Germany.
The presentation delivered by Veronika Waeninger, MUAS Student Exchange (Asia, Arab World and Africa) co-odinator, promoted MUAS and the partnership they wish to form with the DUT Engineering Department. MUAS already offers exchange programs in disciplines such as hospitality management, travel and tourism management as well as marketing management sciences with other universities.
With only 17 500 students, MUAS is a university that is big on promoting independence and professionalism to its students. “We teach our students entrepreneurial thinking and action. Wwe want to shape the profile of our students,” said Waeninger.
MUAS wishes to engage in a successful relationship with Bachelor of Technology (BTech), Master’s and PhD students. MUAS not only offers exchange programmes to students but also a six-month exchange program for lecturers who wish to lecture at MUAS.
