He is the substantive Executive Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences (2014 to date). He holds a BSc. Degree in Physics (UNZA), a PRET Diploma (London), Cert. in Applied Meteorology (Met. Office College) and a Ph.D. Degree in Geophysics (Uppsala). Dr. Hlatywayo joined NUST in 1998 as a lecturer in the Department of Applied Physics. He has served NUST as Senior Lecturer and Chairman of the Department of Applied Physics (1999 - 2010), as Acting Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences (2010 - 2014), and as the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences (2014 -to date). He has been a member of the NUST Academic Board (2004 - to date), University Senate (1999 - to date), University Council (2004- to date), and several other Committees of the University. During the period he was Departmental Chairman, his leadership saw the Applied Physics Departmental Board introduce MSc programmes in Lasers & Applied Optics (2003), Geophysics(2003), Medical Physics(2003), Radiography(2010), and two Undergraduate programmes; i.e. BSc(Honours) Degree in Radiography(2002) and BSc(Special Honours) Degree in Radiography(2010). He has also served as an External Examiner for Geophysics to University of Venda (South Africa) (2010-present), and Physics to Bindura University of Science Education, Zimbabwe.Prior to joining NUST, Dr. Hlatywayo worked at Zimuto Secondary School as a Mathematics lecturer (1977), at Mount Silinda as Mathematics and Physics teacher (1978-1979) and as the Headmaster of Mount Silinda High School (1980 - 1981). In 1982, he joined the Zimbabwe Meteorological Services (Ministry of Transport) as a Meteorologist. He was deployed at Thornhill Airbase as Meteorological Aviation Weather Forecaster (1982 -1983) and was transferred to Bulawayo Airport Meteorological Office (Aviation Weather Forecaster) (1983 - 1987). In 1988 he took up the post of Senior Seismologist and Chief Meteorological Officer in Matebeleland in the Zimbabwe Meteorological Services Department and soon served the Zimbabwe Meteorological Services as Officer-in–charge at Goetz Observatory and Principal Seismologist& Chief Meteorological Officer in Matabeleland(1987-1997).
