Developing partnerships with other universities internationally is one of the aims of the Directorate: International Education and Partnerships (IEP).
The International Education and Partnerships (IEP) office was established to support the Durban University of Technology (DUT) in its drive towards becoming a globally positioned University of Technology.
The IEP also plays a vital role of encouraging internationalisation by highlighting activities in all departments to international and potential partners.
Every semester, international exchange students make their way to the Durban University of Technology for a semester course. This year, six German students are at DUT to study Internet Programming 2 from February 2018 until May 2018.
As part of their semester course project, the six international students were split into two groups of three, and tasked to design a website for the International Office. Both groups delivered excellent, high-caliber presentations and the winning team were awarded with trophies at a Mini Awards ceremony, for their efforts.
This student exchange initiative by the IEP was established 10 years ago with only two international students and has now grown in leaps and bounds.
