Centre for Postgraduate Studies

About us

The Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPGS) was established in 2009 to coordinate master’s and doctoral studies at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT).

The Centre facilitates postgraduate studies by connecting students with faculties, managing bursaries, and providing research support. We help with project planning, statistical analysis and software usage. Our seminars and workshops aid students and supervisors in research methods and statistics. Additionally, we monitor student progress and promote research expertise and bursaries to attract students locally and internationally. We aim to support academic excellence, elevate the university’s postgraduate profile and foster technology innovation through research.

Role of the Centre

The Centre’s responsibilities encompass:

  • Mentoring and guiding postgraduate students and supervisors
  • Enhancing research skills for postgraduate students
  • Offering advice and support for student challenges
  • Offering orientation programmes for new postgraduate students
  • Monitoring and ensuring quality postgraduate progress
  • Cultivating strong faculty relationships to support training initiatives
  • Establishing policy guidelines for effective research dissemination

Enjoy your stay at CPUT

In line with the CPUT Vision 2030, we are building a broad academic community of researchers, scholars and students ready to work together towards attaining our goals. We look forward to welcoming you as a member of our community.
