Another milestone agreement with Indian VarsityThe Harare Institute of Technology has signed yet another milestone Memorandum of Understanding with the Jawarharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad, India.

The MoU was signed during a recent visit to India by a HIT delegation led by the Vice Chancellor, Engineer Kanhukamwe. The delegation also visited the Dehli Technological University.

The main objectives of the visit were to discover what Indian Universities offer in their TVET approach to tertiary education, to learn how they arrived at their present day TVET model, and to arrive at a win-win model of mutual benefit.

The Universities agreed that by August 2012, Harare Institute of Technology will send approximately 28 Teaching Assistants for Master of Technology degrees in various disciplines comprising MTech Chemical Technology, MTech Chemical Engineering, MTech Software Engineering, MTech Information Technology, MTech Computer Networks and Security, MTech Image Processing, MTech Parallel Computing, MTech Neural Networks, MTech Computer Science and Engineering, MTech Computer Science, MTech Web Technology, MTech Real Time Systems, MTech Nano Technology, MTech Microwave & Optical Communication, MTech Signals and Systems Processing, MTech Wireless and Mobile Communication, MTech Instrumentation and Controls, MTech Machine Design, MTech Engineering Design, MTech Automation, MTech Thermal Engineering, MTech Bioinformatics, MTech Biotechnology, M.Pharm Pharmaceutics, and M.Pharm Pharmaceutical Analysis and Quality Assurance.

This is in line with the Institute`s endeavour to identify strong, powerful, successful global Institutions/Universities of Technology which exist in an environment that shares a substantial number of values and traits with Zimbabwe as a nation and added to that aligning to the HIT Act (Chapter 25:26) and HIT Destiny, Cause and Calling.
