Academic programs look to the future

Maptek helps students across the world, working in partnership with universities to shape future careers and create a bright tomorrow for industry.

Maptek has expanded its program in Southern Africa to include the University of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Students in the Polytechnic faculty will have access to academic licences for Maptek Vulcan and PointStudio software and academic staff will receive training in how to use the tools so they can support their classes.

Maptek BlastLogic Sales Lead Badisheng Morena and Sales & Mine Planning Consultant Stacy Epiga enjoyed a tour of the Polytechnic Faculty and met academic staff who are involved in the undergraduate program.

‘We are honoured that the University has agreed to join the Maptek University Program,’ Morena said.
