Namibia University Of Science And Technology

The Academy for Tertiary Education was the forerunner of the public university that is now known as the Namibia University of Science and Technology (Act No. 13 of 1980). On January 14th, 1980, classes for secretarial and teacher training began.
Act No. 9 of 1985 was enacted five years later, creating the Academy, which had a university component, a Technikon, and a College for Out of School Training (COST).

The Technikon provided a total of 17 diploma and certificate programs, including ones in agriculture and environmental protection, human resources management, public administration, cost accounting, secretarial work, and legal and communication skills training. 13 certificate programs in technical and business/general subjects were available via the College for Out-of-School Training (COST). Pre-tertiary teacher preparation was a component of several of the courses.

Our goal is to increase the competitiveness of the nation by offering numerous chances for top-notch instruction, practical research, innovation, and service.
In order for our institution to build the necessary reputation of excellence in those fields, to provide synergy for staff development around those particular fields, and to promote entrepreneurship in a knowledge economy, applied research should be concentrated on a small number of niche areas based on Namibia’s needs.
Our objective is to make the essential contributions to applied research to improve community participation and draw in international relationships through group effort, internal publications, and research seminars.
