Dr Libe Valentine Massawe became the first black doctoral candidate when CUT awarded her Doctorate in Electrical Engineering on 7 September 2012.

Her study entitled “The design and development of a multi agent based RFID middleware system for data and device management” received a rave review from within academic cycle and amongst her peers. She is an international student from Tanzania who identified CUT as a university of choice to enable her to complete her doctoral studies.

She was joined by another international student Dr Alex Gröhmann, who obtained his Doctorate in Marketing. His study entitled “Influences of Market Response Time on sales planning and forecasting in the industrial context.” was a co-promoted by senior professors from CUT and Aalen University in Germany. On 17 September 2012, both institutions will be celebrating ten years of collaborations in numerous research projects including productive student exchange programmes.

Student mobility from all over the world requires universities including CUT to adopt their curriculum and work harder by preparing themselves for intakes of such students. CUT considers these global trends as significant developments toward internationalisation of its curriculum and partnerships with other universities, which invariably support South Africa’s commitment to its globalisation strategy including SADC partnership programmes and their importance to the internationalisation of higher education.

Dr Lucas Nigrini also received his doctorate in Electrical Engineering and his study entitled “Developing a neural network model to predict the electrical load demand in the Mangaung Municipal area.” focused on the real-time issue of load shedding and how to accurately predict the expected use of electrical power.

Other doctoral degree was awarded to Dr Louise Smit for the study entitled “A framework for an affordable pricing strategy at the Central University of Technology, Free State.” in Cost and Management Accounting. Dr Smit took the affordability of higher education for students to task and was able to determine a plan of action for a more scientific implementation of the recommended pricing plan.

More than 300 CUT graduates were awarded Advanced Certificates, National Diplomas, Baccalaureus Educationis, BTech, MTech and DTech’s on 7 September 2012. This is again a record number of graduates for the institution’s Spring Graduation.
