National University of Science and Technology

The idea of a Second University in Zimbabwe was first mooted in June 1982 in the Report of the University of Zimbabwe, Vice Chancellor’s committee of Inquiry into the high failure rates which that University experienced in the years 1980 and 1981.It was not until late 1987, that the Vice Chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe, Professor W. J. Kamba discussed with his colleagues the necessity of approaching Government about setting up a feasibility study of a second university/campus. As a result of this discussion a recommendation was made to the then Minister of Education, Dr Dzingai Mutumbuka that a Commission be set up to look into the question of a second institution of higher education in Zimbabwe.

The Commission presented its report to His Excellency, the late former President, Robert G. Mugabe on the 1st February 1989. Its major conclusion was that, on the basis of manpower requirements for economic growth and of the increasing number of well qualified `A’ level school leavers, University expansion “is not only justified: it is also a necessity”. It recommended that a “Second University should be established with a Science and Technology bias”, and that the University “be located in Bulawayo and should admit its first students in 1993”.
