Rugbeer H

Vijay Rugbeer was employed by the University of Zululand as Public Relations lecturer in 2003. Prior to this, he managed PCs-4-Africa, a thriving computer sales company in Durban. His keen business sense enabled him to grasp the vision and mission of the University of Zululand and worked hard to ensure that the comprehensive nature of the University was achieved. He pioneered the introduction of SAQA/CHE approved Diploma and Certificate programmes in the Faculty of Arts.

The Department of Communication Science has progressed exponentially since his leadership in 2006. He manages a Department at the main Vulindlela and the city campus and an equally large Department at our city campus in Richards Bay.

Vijay has not only forged good relationships with other Departments within this University but also with our neighbouring Universities (UKZN and DUT). He is used as an external examiner and moderator by similar Departments at these institutions. Vijay is well known in the Public Relations circles and has a keen interest in Digital Communication.
