I cannot for the life of me understand why most university's in SA have never adopted first world mentality but it probably has something to do with "indifferent" staff. Or grumpy less-than-capable staff. Either way all these grads will get snapped up and probably end up working overseas. With our exorbitant telephone costs how could we possibly have a Google coming out of South Africa? Anything that relies on communication is doomed and I doubt mobile innovation will circumvent this.
Just imagine what all our CS & engineering students could do if we weren't crippled by costs? SA would be a whole different landscape
I don't know. Sounds cool but note the fact that they want to transfer IP to their industry partner. Sounds like anything you do in the lab that really comes to something the university will own and then sell.
An important point of the student web creator is they do it in their own time and on their own equipment so the university can't claim ownership. I might be overstating it but I would be very careful what you do in university owned labs.
