Advisory Committees

UTT works very closely with Advisory Committees in order to ensure that its programme offerings are relevant to the needs of the various sectors that it serves.

Working together with these Committees, UTT administrators and instructors ensure that all curricula are stakeholder-driven. Through such extensive use of the Advisory Committees, UTT ensures that the needs of local companies and the changes occurring in the workplace are continuously monitored and appropriate modifications reflecting these needs and changes are made in the curricula. 

Human Resources

UTT's Academic Staff consists of individuals who are highly skilled, experienced and qualified in their areas of expertise. In order to teach in certificate and diploma level programmes, academic staff will normally have a minimum qualification of a Bachelor's degree along with several years of relevant occupational/teaching experience. Senior academic staff teaching upper level courses must normally possess a Master's degree or Doctorate along with significant relevant occupational/teaching experience.

UTT also maintains a large pool of qualified part-time instructors who are currently employed in their fields of specialization. The University's approach with respect to the qualifications and experience of its instructors, ensures that the academic staff is well prepared to bring to the classroom today's solutions to the problems encountered in the world of work.
