USHEPiA makes new appointment

USHEPiA, aka the University Science, Humanities and Engineering Partnerships in Africa, has appointed Saudin Jacob Mwakaje as the USHEPiA Intellectual Property Co-ordinator on a two-year contract. The University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania is the host, although Mwakaje will work with all the USHEPiA universities. Mwakaje is an advocate of the High Court of Tanzania, has participated in litigation in courts of law and offered legal consultancy on intellectual property, and is deeply interested in matters pertaining to intellectual property and technology transfer, particularly its impact on Africa's economy. In his role as USHEPiA co-ordinator, he will provide IP management services to the USHEPiA partner universities.

IAPO welcomes international students

The International Academic Programmes Office (IAPO) laid out the welcome mat again last week as some 300 students from 10 countries signed up at UCT. The students will spend about six months here on the semester-abroad programme, carrying on their academic studies while also experiencing the sights and sounds of Cape Town. At last week's function, Registrar Hugh Amoore gave the students a potted history of UCT, before the Drum Café hosted the now traditional drum circle where the students joined in for some thump-along local beats.
