Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is a public university of technology located in Pretoria, South Africa. The university was formed in 2004 as a result of the merger of three established institutions – Technikon Northern Guateng, Technikon North-West and Technikon Pretoria. While Technikon Pretoria was a historically advantaged institution located in the city, technikons North-West and Northern Gauteng were historically disadvantaged institutions located in the townships of Ga-Rankuwa and Soshanguve respectively.

The rationale for the merger was the proximity and overlap of academic programmes. The oldest of the three institutions was Technikon Pretoria, which was formed in 1900 as Irene Technical School, became the Pretoria Trade School in 1909, was the Pretoria Technical College from 1923 until 1979 and was then renamed Technikon Pretoria.

Technikon Northern Gauteng (TNG) was established in 1970 as Technikon Northern Transvaal and became Technikon Northern Gauteng in 1980. Technikon North-West was established in 1976 as Setlogelo College and became Technikon North-West in 1987. TUT has 8 campuses in 5 cities across 4 provinces of the country (Gauteng, North-West, Mpumalanga and Limpopo).

The Tshwane University of Technology ranks 12th on Webometrics ranking of South African universities, and it also ranks as the top University of Technology in the whole of Africa. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) ranks the university’s Department of Journalism as one of twelve Potential Centres of Excellence in Journalism Training in Africa.

One of TUT’s key focus is the economic and social development of the Southern African region. In its quest to promote knowledge and technology, it provides the market with a career-focused workforce. It also aims at making a significant contribution to creating sustainable economic growth that will impact on the standard of living of all of the region’s people. Student enrolment is over 66567, with staff members being over 8817.

The university has several facilities that contribute to a conducive study environment and student life. These include facilities for accommodation, recreation, internet centres, laundry facilities and security services. Bus transport is available for all students staying in residences that are not situated on campus.

All residence students are levied with a transport fee that allows them to use any of the TUT buses. Some residences offer self-catering services, and there exist cafeterias that offer meals daily. ​The Directorate of Health and Wellness provides comprehensive and confidential health and wellness services that promote health, prevent ill-health, and maintain and restore the mental and physical well-being of TUT students.

The university counts a library with online resources and a large catalogue.

Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa. It stretches along both sides of the Apies River and extends into the western foothills of the Magaliesberg on the east. it was founded in 1855 by Marthinus, son of Andries Pretorius, the Boer statesman for whom the city. It became the capital of the Transvaal in 1860, the administrative capital of South Africa in 1910, and a city in 1931.

Winston Churchill was imprisoned there during the Second Boer War until his escape. The Second Boer War saw the start of British hegemony in South Africa. Pretoria is situated 55 kilometres from Johannesburg. It has a humid subtropical climate with long hot rainy summers and short cool to cold, dry winters. It experiences typical South African winters with cold, clear nights and mild to moderately warm days.

Although the average lows during winter are mild, it can get cold due to the uncovered skies. The average annual temperature is quite high at about 18.7 degrees Celsius. The total population of Pretoria is about 2.5 million people. The main languages spoken in Pretoria are Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, Xitsonga, Afrikaans and English.

The city has the largest white population in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since its founding, it has been a major Afrikaner population centre, and currently, there are roughly 1 million Afrikaners living in or around the city, making them the largest white ethnic group, with the Northern Sothos being the largest black ethnic group.

The post-World War II boom is evidenced by skyscrapers around Church Square; landmarks commemorate Boer history, and cultural attractions include the Kruger Museum, the National Cultural History Museum and an art museum. The Transvaal Museum has natural history displays and is the home of Mrs Ples, the hominid fossil found at Sterkfontein.

The Central Business District retains its status as the traditional centre of government and commerce, with many banks, business, large corporations, shops and shopping centres situated in the city centre. The Poyntons Building is the tallest skyscraper, followed by the ABSA Building and the Reserve Bank of South Africa.

Pretoria is adorned with large parks like the terraced gardens of the Union Buildings, the sunken gardens of Venning Park, municipal nature reserves, and the National Zoological Gardens. Other places of historical interest in Pretoria include Voortrekker Monument and Freedom Park. Activities in the city include horse riding trails, game viewing and skydiving.

The outskirts of the city are characterised by the Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, the country’s largest research organisation. It is the seat of the University of Pretoria, the University of South Africa, Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University and the Tshwane University of Technology.

The city is a multicultural hub that allies industry and a stellar reputation for research and higher education, making it a suitable location for students contemplating further education.

Pretoria is sometimes regarded as the quiet sister to the always bustling Johannesburg, but the city is full of surprises. It is quite easy to navigate the streets of Pretoria, thanks to its grid layout and wide roads. Pretoria is well-planned and famous for its streets lined with jacaranda trees, the reason why it is known as Jacaranda City.

Although it is primarily a seat of government, the city also doubles as an important industrial centre – engineering, food processing, diamond mining – all of these reflect the economic status of the city. It also accounts for Pretoria’s status as the most expensive South African city, with monthly costs for a single person without rent being close to 9000 Rands, and over 14000 Rands with rent.

Pretoria is the central part of the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality which was formed by the amalgamation of several former local authorities including Centurion and Soshanguve. Pretoria has over the years had very diverse cultural influences and this is reflected in the architectural styles that can be found in the city.

It ranges from 19th century Dutch, German and British colonial architecture to modern, postmodern, neomodern, and art deco architecture styles with a good mix of a uniquely South African style.

Transport in Pretoria is dependent on commuter rail services operated by Metrorail, with routes that originate from the city centre and extend to other cities in all directions Various bus companies exist in Pretoria, of which PUTCO is one of the oldest and most recognised. Tshwane municipality provides the remainder of the bus services.

Although there are two military airbases south of the city, Pretoria is served by Johannesburg’s airports, with the lone airport in the city being used for light commercial and private aircraft.
