HARARE Polytechnic principal, Engineer Tafadzwa Mudondo, has congratulated 20 students who were handed a chance to further their studies in China.

Speaking at the institution’s graduation ceremony, Engineer Mudondo said he was happy that some of his products have made it to the China-Africa Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Cooperative Programmes.

The three-year courses will be at the Ningbo Polytechnic University of China.

“This programme seeks to enable technology transfer and promote collaboration in research and exchange programmes.

“The students will spend their first-year learning in Zimbabwe, 18 months inclusive attachment in China, and will write examinations in China,” he said.

The selected students were currently studying towards a national certificate in Millwright Works.

Engineer Mudondo said the institution will religiously seek to create avenues which ensure a learner-centred education ecosystem.

Last week, the institution invited motor industry players like Toyota Zimbabwe, VID, Automobile Association, ZIMOCO and the Ministry of Transport, to authenticate its technology transfer conversion of motor vehicles to dual systems.

“I am happy to announce that six Harare Polytechnic automotive technicians were technologically capacitated and then successfully pioneered and engineered the local conversion of 10 vehicles which are now on dual systems.

“The advantage of using gas is higher mileage, cleaner energy, better power, economic price tag, low maintenance and reduced fuel dependence,” he said.

The institution is also in the process of expanding to accommodate more students.

It has already acquired 10 hectares of land in Murombedzi where a satellite centre will be constructed.

“Going closer to the rural areas will help the institution to address challenges that are being faced by communities.

“We hope to create a modern education system that reflects both the examples in the world and the needs of Zimbabwe today,” Eng Mudondo said.

He encouraged the graduates to implement their skills in entrepreneurship and alleviation of poverty.
