The Durban University of Technology is based in KwaZulu-Natal and has five campuses in Durban and two in Pietermaritzburg. It was formed in 2002 after a merger between Technikon Natal and ML Sultan Technikon. It strives to provide cutting-edge education and aims to develop leaders in the technology sector while also making knowledge useful and valuable.
The institution prides itself on being at the cutting-edge of technology as well as technical education and training. Part of their external engagement with the community includes innovation and entrepreneurship for students. Both campuses also celebrate arts and culture. Since 1982, the art gallery has aimed to collect and curate historical as well as contemporary art. There are also regular exhibitions.
The university has, between its two merged institutions, almost 100 years of experience behind it, and has become a leading name in universities of technology across South Africa. The core values include respect for students and staff, dignity, honesty in all endeavours, and trust.
