CPUT services and information are now available at your fingertips.

Thanks to innovative staff members at the Web Office, the University has launched its first Mobile App, which will allow individuals to access a range of CPUT information and services from a smartphone.

Developed by Lovemore Nalube and Ashley Jones, the Mobile App will link you to many things including course announcements, paperless meeting documents, examination results, prospectus, application status and much more.

“It’s like having your university in your pocket,” says Nalube.

The Mobile App has been intelligently customized and depending on whether you log on as a student, staff member or a member of the public, the app will show you tailored information.

Nalube says the Mobile App has a vibrant look and feel and elements such as the weather, news and student jobs have been incorporated.

To date, over 1000 people have downloaded the app from Android Play Store and have given the app a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

“We will continue to improve the app and release it to Apple and Windows phones soon,” says Nalube.

Vice-Chancellor, Dr Prins Nevhutalu says the launch of the Mobile App is a milestone for CPUT and will play a vital role in enhancing the lives of students as well as staff members.
