The Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) is the fourth public University in Malawi, established in 2012. Its vision is to be a world-class centre of science and technology education, research and entrepreneurship. It comprises of four Schools: Malawi Institute of Technology, Ndata School of Climate and Earth Sciences, Academy of Medical Sciences, and Bingu School of Culture and Heritage.
The University has established an International Centre of Quality Management, Research and Training (ICQ) housed under the Academy of Medical Sciences. The overall objectives of the ICQ are twofold: a) to improve healthcare services in Malawi through evidence provision by evaluating quality improvement interventions, capacity building on quality management as well as promoting innovations and digital health applications b) enhance quality management at MUST. The Centre shall therefore support the newly established Quality Management Directorate (QMD) at the Ministry of Health and Population in improving the quality of healthcare service delivery in Malawi. It shall also collaborate very closely with all Schools and Directories within MUST and other Universities in Malawi through innovative responses and capacity building. MUST intends therefore to engage a well-qualified professional to manage the activities of the Centre.
