The university’s information and public relations director Felix Moyo confirmed the institution received a complete set of broadcast equipment worth $25 000.
Moyo said they were now working on installation of the material which he hoped would be completed in a few days.
“We received studio equipment from Unesco. It will be a teaching studio and will mostly benefit students in the faculty of communication,” Moyo said.
“This is a great opportunity for students to be exposed to modern equipment before they go to the field.”
Moyo revealed that on November 12 they had the Association of African Universities’ anniversary at the campus whose theme was “University industrial links for employability of students”.
He said invited industrialists were complaining about students coming to industry without any knowledge of modern equipment and their operations.
“Over the years students were doing theory without practical knowledge of the subject,” he said.
“Now they will apply their skills and gain experience before they could go to the field.”
Moyo said a tour on the studio will be conducted soon after all the work had been completed.
