Midlands State University to Partner Chinhoyi University of Technology

One and a half minute read

In a development that is set to advance mineral valuation and beneficiation at national level, Midlands State University and Chinhoyi University of Technology, are fervently working towards establishing a mutual working relationship that will see the two institutions collaborate through research and knowledge transfer to improve the quality of graduates through exchange visits, infrastructure and equipment sharing.

During a visit to the University on the 3rd of September 2018, Professor David J. Simbi the Vice-Chancellor of Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) underscored the importance of collaborative partnerships among Zimbabwe universities as a means for bringing about economic growth.

Speaking during a tour of the Midlands State University Zvishavane Campus where the Faculty of Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering is housed, Professor Simbi who was involved in the establishment of the Faculty, said CUT was keen to partner MSU to advance mineral valuation and beneficiation.

“One of our mandates as universities is to enable economic growth through researches and we hope that a successful partnership with Midlands State University will help us achieve this goal.”

Midlands State University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Victor N. Muzvidziwa also echoed the same sentiments saying collaborations were very necessary particularly in light of the rise in the global knowledge economy which calls for strategic partnerships that go beyond the traditional research activities at universities.

The partnership is expected to produce graduates who fit into the job market as well as go on to transform mineral valuation and beneficiation in the country.

Commenting on the envisioned partnership, Midlands State University, Executive Dean of Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering, Dr A. Mamuse was optimistic that the relationship between MSU and CUT would empower, uplift, and inspire better learning and research systems for both institutions of higher learning for the benefit of the nation.

Under the proposed partnership students and staff from both institutions are set to benefit from exchange programmes, collaborative research opportunities and co-supervision of student dissertations in the case of the latter. The CUT delegation also had a chance to tour the University’s facilities during their visit.
