DUT is a multi-campus tertiary institution which offers 47 academic programmes (full-time and part-time) in six faculties, on campuses in Durban and the Midlands. Financial assistance is offered to deserving students to assist in the financing of their studies. The DUT´s Mission is to serve the needs of developing societies within a dynamic global context and the enable quality teaching, learning, research and community engagement by providing quality, career-focused education; Promoting: A values-driven ethos; Sustainable partnerships with industry, community and society; Excellence in applied and relevant research and; Empowering staff and students to succeed and ensuring institutional sustainability. DUT will be guided by the following values when planning, setting priorities, and making decisions regarding the DUT community´s pursuits of the three fold mission of higher education, i.e., teaching and learning, research and innovation and engagement.


Mission

DUT has a new strategy map called Envision 2030. The 2030 statement of intent states the following:

The new strategy has four perspectives: the first two being stewardship and systems and processes to help create an effective and enabling environment and the next two being sustainability and society to ensure the University is influencing and impactful.
