Accommodation near Vaal University of Technology

The Vaal University of Technology (VUT) is one of the largest of its kind in South Africa. Its main campus is located in southern Gauteng, Vanderbijlpark to be precise, one of the major industrial towns of the area. The university is located close to a belt of petrochemical, telecommunications and engineering businesses among others, in other words, appropriately positioned near some dynamic and interesting technological developments.

The institution was established in 1966 as The College for Advanced Technical Education. It has been renamed a number of times since then and had numerous renovations to get it where it is today. In 2004, during the transformation of the higher education sector in South Africa, it acquired the name it has today, and while the main campus is still Vanderbijlpark, there are satellite campuses of VUT in Secunda, Kempton Park and Upington in the Northern Cape.

The Vaal University of Technology enrols approximately 21 000 students every year, a far cry from the 189 who first studied there in 1966! There are over 300 staff members who teach students, mainly in English, across the university's 4 faculties. Applied and Computer Science, Engineering and Technology, Humanities, and Management Sciences are the VUT faculties and between them roughly 300 programs are offered to students.

Another of the university's claims to fame is that it is one of the largest residential universities in South Africa and believe it or not, there is a lot more to it than strict academics. While there are excellent facilities like laboratories, auditoriums and lecture halls which facilitate learning and research there is also an important emphasis put on arts, culture, sport and other recreational activities so that students are promised an well-rounded university experience.

Vanderbijlpark Reviews

I don't like the town-potholes and dirty
- Theo Scholtz

Vanderbijlpark is 'n skoon dorp en 'n plesier om daar besigheid te doen. Die straatname is duidelik en advertensie- en aanwysingsborde help baie.
