The development of infrastructure at the University of Pretoria (UP) is first class. This was confirmed once again when two of the new buildings on the Hatfield Campus walked away with prestigious South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Innovative Excellence Awards.
I am pleased to inform you that I received many messages conveying positive feedback on the UP Open Day 2013. I was especially pleased about comments that the UP team of staff, students and volunteers was especially helpful and friendly.
My heartfelt appreciation to all who contributed to a positive experience for parents, prospective students, families, school principals and teachers. I encourage you to keep up the good work. Open Day is an important event for the University for attracting good students, and for broadly enhancing the reputation and status of the University.
‘Making a choice to enrol at a university, and deciding which university to attend are the most important decisions any young person can make in their lifetime. Therefore, make a good decision: choose the University of Pretoria.’
The University of Pretoria prides itself on its publicly recognised achievements pertaining to its various sporting fraternities. These achievements can be attributed to the University’s sporting facilities, which are of the highest quality among South African universities. To add to its quality achievements, the University of Pretoria, through TuksSport and the High Performance Centre (hpc), has now officially opened a golf training centre.
South African human rights law professor, Christof Heyns, will submit a widely anticipated report on Lethal Autonomous Robots (LARs) to the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council on 29 May 2013.
Prof Heyns, from the University of Pretoria (UP), was appointed as UN Special Rapporteur on extra-judicial, summary or arbitrary executions in 2010. During last year, he conducted worldwide research on the question whether states should be allowed to use LARs - weapons that, once deployed, can use lethal force without further human intervention - during war, or peace.
