Newly appointed Vice-Chancellor and Principal at the Central University of Technology, Henk de Jager, would like to see the institution become one of the leading innovative institutions in the country and on the African continent during his tenure.
De Jager’s term will officially begin on 1 June and he has been in an acting Vice-Chancellor role since October last year.
He said he would like to focus on four other key areas in addition to accelerating the innovation process in its programmes.
Focus on the university community at large, accelerating transformation, enhancing international partnerships as well as improving the financial viability of the institution are also high on his wish list.
