Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) Vice Chancellor Professor Address Malata says the University needs more hostels and staff houses to meet their dream of increasing enrolment.

She said this on Wednesday during the University’s graduation ceremony.

"Actually, at the moment we are already stuck because we are in rural area and we don't have many private sector, institutions and buildings,” she said.

Deputy Minister of Education, Monica Chayanganamuno, said that "as a country, we are expecting a lot from the graduates because we have Malawi 2063 Vision which is looking at the people like them to advance.”

One of the graduates, Peter Ngwira, who has recently launched his Nyasa Engineering Consultancy Limited, asked for support “to transform and enhance youth collaboration through our Fresh Transformation Agenda Programme.”

Earlier, MUST Acting Council Chairperson, Dr. Matthews Mtumbuka, outlined a number of projects such as the upgrading University's hospital into a high-tech facility and an industrial park, which he says is almost ready for opening.
