AR U A
Postgraduates at UCT are part of a university with extensive
collaborations across Africa. These knowledge networks
help us achieve our mission of enabling Africa to solve our
own, Africa-specific problems, and to develop the next
generation of researchers in order to do so. We aim to
be not just the best in Africa, but the best for Africa.

Engineering Partnerships
in Africa (USHEPiA)
The African Research
Universities Alliance (ARUA),
a partnership of 16 research
universities in Africa, was launched
in early 2016 as a response to the
growing challenges faced by African
universities. The focus is on building
African-centred research excellence
to enable the continent to take control
of its future and assert itself as a powerful
global force. One of ARUA’s missions is to
increase research capacity across the continent,
and the many formal and informal collaborations
between ARUA universities offer a number
of mobility and research opportunities
to postgraduates.
USHEPiA promotes collaboration
among established African
researchers in the generation and
dissemination of knowledge, and
builds institutional and human
capacity in African universities.
