Secunda is situated on the Highveld approximately 150 km from Johannesburg and Pretoria and 180 km from Vanderbijlpark, with one of the largest industries, SASOL, at its door step.
Secunda Campus (previously known as Highveld Ridge Campus) was established in 1987. Since then the Campus has expanded. Currently Secunda Campus has over 850 registered students.
The Secunda Campus is focused on serving the needs of the local industry and in this regard it is primarily a service provider to SASOL with particular emphasis on the delivery of Engineering and Technology related programmes to develop Technician and Engineering Human Resource capacity.
The Upington Campus of the VUT was established in 1995 in order to provide quality tertiary education that is affordable and accessible to the rural communities of the Northern Cape Province. As sole provider of higher education within a 400 km radius in a scarcely populated province, the Upington Campus has a huge impact on the higher educational needs of the communities of Upington and neighbouring towns such as Keimoes, Kakamas, Kenhardt, Olifantshoek, Groblershoop, Prieska as well as other regions such as Namakwaland, Pixley ka Seme (De Aar-Prieska area), JTG (Kuruman area) and even as far as Namibia.
Situated within a predominantly agricultural area, with communities making agriculture their daily lives, it became obvious that one of our niche areas would be programmes in the agricultural fields, hence the National Diploma in Agricultural Management is playing such a huge role in our product mix. The courses currently offered are National Diplomas in Agricultural Management, Tourism Management, Internal Auditing, Marketing Management, Retail Business Management, Human Resources Management and Cost & Management Accounting.
Although the Upington Campus is small, we get to know one another very easily and we can treat you as a person (not a number). Here, we want you to participate, co-operate, enjoy and be part of the VUT family and we promise you all our support in achieving the qualification that you have enrolled for.

Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality is a relatively large service delivery region in the Gauteng Province featuring several residential, commercial and industrial services in Kempton Park, Tembisa, Boksburg, Benoni, Brakpan, Watvilee, Katlegong etc. It is also in Ekurhuleni Municipality that OR Tambo International Airport (Africa’s largest and busiest airport) is located together with the associated air-line and travel services (Cargo handling, passenger services, hotels, tourism, aircraft services). These key activities not only bring with them the need for housing, crime control, environmental impact assessment etc, but also high demand for a variety of skills training opportunities at different levels.
Ekurhuleni Satellite Campus is the only contact higher education institution in the municipality with excellent prospects for offering training at degree, diploma, certificate and especially short course levels. The decision of the VUT Council to mandate the Campus to focus on ICT and related programmes represents a positive insight into the features and needs of Ekurhuleni Municipality as a whole.
