University of Cape Town

There are currently eleven postgraduates from different African countries working at UCT. The so-called HPI-CS4A Center (Computer Science for Africa) aims to become a leading centre of excellence in designing computational solutions (both algorithmic and user centric) for the developing world’s context.

The HPI Research School @ UCT incorporates researchers from a variety of backgrounds such as anthropology, media studies, information systems and computer science. Together they work with local and internationally-based technology companies to address problems in the areas of TeleHealth, M-Education, Mobile Internet, and Mobile Tele-Commuting.
