The ITI also welcomes opportunities to conduct contract research for and in conjunction with such organizations. a. Graduate (None);
b. Postgraduate. Many students perform research at the Institute at master's and doctoral level. Since the ITI is not a degree-granting unit of the University of Pretoria, the students are all enrolled in other departments of the University. Students with an engineering background usually enrol for master's or doctoral degrees in the Management of Technology in the Department of Engineering and Technology Management, but the ITI also welcomes students from other departments – including the Natural and Social Sciences and Humanities – to participate in its research projects. Multidisciplinary research is strongly encouraged.
