TSB Takes Home Three Excellence Awards

By Unene Gregory on 23rd Nov 2021 in News

The 2019/2020 Tshwane University of Technology Academic Excellence Awards were held on Wednesday evening, 17 November 2021. The excellence awards are held annually and are one of the university’s leading events. The purpose of the awards is to recognise and celebrate university academic staff members who have excelled in their duties and have made a positive contribution to the university and beyond. Thus, also highlighting the university’s academic brand and key projects

Three of TSB’s academics walked away with awards at Wednesday’s event. Prof Zeleke Worku received the award for “Senior researcher of the year”, Prof Vinessa Naidoo received “Best Woman Researcher in the Faculty of Management Sciences” and Dr Emmanuel Innocents Edoun received a Merit Award – Senior Researcher of the Year in the Faculty of Management Sciences.

These awards are not a first for TSB, they are additions to the other awards our academics have received over the years. This speaks to the dedication and hard work of our academics and the TSB team, who strive to make a positive impact on our students and the community.

In addition to their teaching and supervision work, and conducting their own research, our academics also run community programmes, mentor small businesses, and serve on committees. We are proud of the work they do and the contribution they make.
