Universities and universities of technology offer similar qualifications ranging from Higher Certificates (as the entry into higher education) up to Doctoral degrees. The main difference between universities of technology and universities is that universities of technology focus on technology innovation and transfer and offer technological career-directed educational programmes.

This exposure to industry develops additional competencies that are not gained through purely academic programmes and assists graduates to find employment after graduation."
