The conception of the Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) can be traced to the national strategic shift that came with the Revised National Policy on Education (RNPE) of 1994. Unlike the country’s first Education Policy of 1977 dubbed ‘Education for Kagisano’ whose thrust was ‘access and equity’, the RNPE shifted focus to ‘quality’ and emphasized an education system geared at the world of work.
RNPE recognised the realities of globalisation and envisaged an education system that would produce globally competitive graduates.
RNPE recognised Science and Technology as the driving engines in transforming the country from a pre-dominantly agro-based economy to an industrial economy, hence the subsequent establishment of a National Science and Technology Policy in 1998.
