The South African National Research Network (SANReN), a part of the CSIR, recently signed a MoU with the Institute for ICTA Advancement (IICTA) in the Faculty of Engineering, the Built Environment and Information Technology.

The main objective of this MoU is to conduct research and develop high level manpower in the fields of communication networks and IT governance. A number of postgraduate scholarships form part of this agreement and the first postgraduate research students will enroll next year. Also forming part of this agreement is the opportunity for students who studied in the field of Communication Network to work at SANReN and gain valuable practical experience in the process.

The students will stay at the premises of the CSIR for the three weeks and work on the national communications network that links almost all universities.
