The Botswana International University of Science & Technology (BIUST) is a government-supported institution established as a research-intensive university. Located on a gently sloping land in the hills southeast of Palapye, Botswana, BIUST specializes in engineering, science and technology at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
The university is a national strategic initiative that is intended to serve as one of the key platforms for transforming Botswana’s economy from being resource-based to knowledge-based through skills, capacity building in engineering, science, and technology. Because of its research emphasis, BIUST works closely with the private sector to meet emerging skills needs of the industry, as well as identifies challenges that can be solved through applied research. The university’s dedication to facing industry needs is just one of the reasons why we value their partnership.
