Academic Development Unit
The Academic Development Unit (ADU) is a component within the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment (EBE) tasked with three main mandates
- Contribute to improved faculty through-put,
- Coordinate and oversee the Engineering common first year (CFY) programme, and
- Provide student and staff support at all strata’s [Academic (student & staff), Eco-social support and Psycho-social support].
We like to think of the ADU as a home for all the students in the faculty, a safe space to be heard, and a solid foundation for achieving academic potential in a holistic (all rounded) way. This philosophy enables the ADU to impact over a thousand engineering and built environment undergraduate and postgraduate students every year.
