The Harare Institute of Technology (HIT) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with a top South African university to collaborate and promote academic exchange programs.
The international agreement will see HIT and Tshwane University of Technology strengthen relations in academic research in areas such as technology advancement, technology researches and innovation.
HIT and Tswane will also coordinate activities such as joint research and transfer of technology, exchange of documentation and research materials of mutual interests.
Tshwane University of Technology was established through a merger of three technikons, Technikon Northern Gauteng, Technikon North-West and Technikon Pretoria.
The partnership with HIT will come as a massive advantage to the local alumni as the students will get widened exposure to some of the learning systems being used down south.
