The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) was established in 2005 as a result of the merging of the former Cape Technikon (established in 1920) and the former Peninsula Technikon (established in 1967). This amalgamation, a key aspect of the national plan for developing an effective delivery structure for higher education in South Africa, resulted in CPUT becoming the only university of technology in the Western Cape, with an enrolment of over 33 000 students in 2011.
The University extends over 10 campuses and the academic programmes are housed in six faculties:
Our mission is to develop a sustaining and empowering environment where, through teaching, learning, research and scholarship our students and staff, in partnership with the community and industry, are able to create and apply knowledge that contributes to development. The majority of our programmes incorporate work-integrated learning strategies that require students to undertake in-service and practical training as a vital complementary component of their academic learning. This emphasis on ensuring that our graduates acquire both theoretical and practical knowledge is one of our more distinctive characteristics and will continue to be developed through our curriculum.
