CUT Status Check-Central University of Technology Application

If you have applied the Central University of Technology you be interested to see if your application has been accepted! We look at the CUT status check and explain the different status codes for your application.

CUT (Central University of Technology) is the leading higher education institution in South Africa’s heartland. The Central University of Technology has two campuses, one in Bloemfontein, South Africa’s judicial capital, and the other in Welkom, the Free State’s goldfields. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); management sciences; humanities; and education are only a few of the technological subjects offered at the two campuses.

The Central University of Technology is currently at the forefront of research and innovation, making it a leader in the use of additive manufacturing (AM) for the design and production of bespoke medical implants in South Africa. The university is also well-known for its technology transfer research, which includes: 

The institution has SARChI designation in the field of Medical Product Development through AM, as well as a Department of Science and Innovation (DSI)/Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (merSETA)-funded Chair in Innovation and Commercialization of AM.

Dr. Blade Nzimande, Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Technology will also launch the MEDADD (Medical Device Additive Manufacturing Technology Demonstrator Project) at the Bloemfontein campus (postponed due to COVID-19). This R71 million DSI-funded project will bring together the university’s center and industry to plan and invest resources in a collaborative manner to develop the local medical device industry using AM technology, and to reduce the country’s reliance on expensive imported medical devices that local hospitals cannot afford. This is only a minor part of the university’s effort in this area.
