Dr Vukosi Marivate selected for the DHET Future Professors Programme

Future Professors Programme is a competitive, selective and transformative programme introduced last year by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) to prepare promising and productive early career academics to become a new cohort of South African professors. The Future Professors Programme offers a structured curriculum that includes intensive seminars and international placement aimed at accelerating the readiness of young academics for the professoriate. Candidates considered are lecturers or senior lecturers in possession of a doctorate and who have already been able to demonstrate significant academic achievement beyond the doctoral degree. We are pleased to announce that Dr Vukosi Marivate, senior lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and the ABSA Data Science chair, was selected for the DHET Future Professors Programme. Selection was competitive with nominations from 26 universities, where every university was only allowed to put 5 candidates forward. Congratulations, Dr Marivate!
