The Corporate Research and Knowledge Transfer Office was set up in September 2009 to assist in the transformation of the University into a modern-day 3rd Generation University built on three pillars, namely: teaching, corporate research, and direct and active participation in sustainable socio-economic development.

1. to drive the Corporate Research agenda of the University in harmony with and in response to:

  • national, social and economic requirements
  • the needs of the local industry
  • emerging expertise and intellectual property
  • funding opportunities

2. to assist the University and academic members of staff:

  • to define and protect intellectual property and commercially exploit research results
  • to participate in externally funded and collaborative research projects
  • to seek financing for corporate research initiatives.
