The NSTF Awards was established in 1998 as a collaborative effort to recognise outstanding contributions to science, engineering and technology (SET) and innovation by SET-related professionals and organisations in South Africa. This includes experienced scientists, engineers, innovators, science communicators, engineering capacity builders, and organisational managers/leaders, as well as data and research managers.

Dr Mahed has been nominated for the following awards:

  • Emerging Researcher

The Science faculty would like to congratulate Dr Mahed, who only recently joined the Science faculty on the 9th of April as a Geosciences lecturer, on this outstanding achievement. Furthermore, we would like to welcome him as the newest member of the Science family and wish him a successful and prosperous journey here.
