“The Future of DUT is in your hands”- SASSE


The South African Survey of Student Engagement (SASSE) is open to all undergraduate and B.Tech. students, and the Lecturer Survey of Student Engagement (LSSE) is open to all lecturers of undergraduate students. The surveys measure the amount of effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities, and the extent to which the university provides the right support structures and facilitates student participation in activities that matter to student learning. Students who completed the 2016 SASSE said that their education at DUT contributed significantly to their writing, speaking and critical thinking skills, their ability to work effectively with others and their job-related knowledge.


Students also enjoyed collaborative learning with their peers. These results help inform curriculum design, work-integrated learning courses and tutorial support programmes. About 1800 students and 100 lecturers participated in SASSE in 2016. This year, the Siyaphumelela project team is aiming to increase student participation to over 5000 students. Registered students who complete the survey in full stand a chance to win great prizes including a grand prize of R1000 if they participate in the #DUTSASSE “SasseSelfie” competition. Look out for competition details on radiodut social media platforms.
