VANDERBIJLPARK - The Vaal University of Technology (VUT) says it is ready to welcome the first batch of students next week. Executive Director of Advancement, Mike Khuboni, says the first group of students who will be allowed to report back on campus are only the senior final year students. This includes students in their 3rd year, doing their Masters etc., which amount to around 2500 - 3000 students who also need to use laboratories in completing their final year of study. Khuboni said VUT Management put in place a COVID-19 Task Team which will ensure strict compliance to COVID-19 protocols. He said every staff member and student entering the campus will be subjected to testing for temperature and will also be sanitized and provided with a mask that must be worn at all times when they are on campus. According to Khuboni, regular random sanitizing and testing will take place and will be the order of the day going forward.
