CSET supports the research goals and strategies of Unisa. It does this by focusing on two of UNISA’s five research themes:

  • Innovation and capacity building in science and technology
  • Open Distance Learning

While there are many research groups in CSET, to focus our research activities, we have identified six flagship research projects that capture the essence of the two research themes as well as UNISA’s goal of increasing research activity and outputs, developing research capacity and inculcating multidisciplinary research. Each of the flagship projects thus has research and development goals which are clearly stated in the research plans that follows.

The following are the flagship projects:

Flagship 1: ODL Reseach
Flagship 2: Topology
Flagship 3: Ecotoxicology Research
Flagship 4: Fuel Cell & Nanotechnology
Flagship 5: Water Research
Flagship 6: Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D)
