Amidst the tranquil indigenous forests of the Southern Cape, lies NMMU’s George Campus which offers all the modern facilities of a first choice technological university such as well equipped classrooms, laboratories, library, IT services, state-of-the-art conference facilities, residences and first class sport facilities.
The Campus consists of two schools namely the School of Natural Resource Management and the School of Business and Social Sciences. The George Campus is situated at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains in the picturesque town of George. Historically, this region is one of South Africa’s most significant timber centres and the forestry and wood technology programme is regarded as an important contributor to knowledge in this sector. The area has also become an important centre for agriculture and game ranching, and is surrounded by a number of nature reserves. The programmes in Agricultural Management, Game Ranch Management and Nature Conservation contribute to these sectors.
