Dr. Dumisani John Hlatywayo is the Acting Pro-Vice Chancellor responsible for Academic matters (December 2015 - to date) at the National University of Science & Technology. 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).
Exploration Geophysics, Groundwater Investigations, Seismotectonics, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation, mining-induced seismicity. He has supervised several students at MSc in Geophysics, MPhil, and Ph.D, as well BSc Honours undergraduate students carrying out Honours Degree theses in the Department of Applied Physics.
Research Awards
In 2002, Dr Hlatywayo won a research Grant of USD 42000.00. The money was used for equipment acquisition to capacity build the Department of Applied Physics in Geophysics.An MSc Geophysics student benefitted from the grant as he carried out his MSc project leading to his MSc thesis which was on crafting a simple seismic acquisition system. Further funding of equal amounts was received consecutively in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 - 2016. The monies have been used primarily to capacity build the department of Applied Physics by acquiring geophysical exploration equipment. The Department is currently well equipped to offer programs in earth sciences and exploration geophysics.
Dr. D.J Hlatywayo has served on several boards, committees, and organisations. He is a member of the NUST University Council, Academic Board, Teaching & Learning Board, Planning & Resource Allocation Committee, NUST Student Affairs Committee, NUST Applied Sciences Higher Degrees Committee, NUST ICT Senate Committee, Academic & Non-academic Staff Appointment Boards,  Academic & Non-academic Staff promotions Committees, NUST Space Allocation Committee, NUST Time Table Committee, SUAS Workshops mainly held to plan for university administrative business including development of the NUST Strategic plan.
Outside the confines of NUST, Dr. Hlatywayo has been a member of the Organising Committee & Sub-committees of the Zimbabwe International Scientific Symposia, the Zimbabwe National Nanotechnology Coordinating Committee(NNCC), Zimbabwe IUGG National Committee (Seismology)(1995-2003), Sub-Saharan Africa Global Earthquake Model(GEM) ESARSWG Coordinator(2010-2013), American Geophysical Union(AGU) Member and Zimbabwe National IUGG Committee (IASPEI Rep.), the Eastern & Southern Africa Regional Seismological  Working Group (ESARSWG) as a Committee Member(1995-2002), ESARSWG Chairman(2008-present). From 2008 to 2011, he presided over a triennial USD 700 000.00 International Science Programs Research Grant (Sweden). Between 2012 and 2016, the ESARSWG has enjoyed three grants in excess of USD60 000.00. The money has been used in geophysical work in networking seismology through workshops producing shared seismic data and capacity building of scientists and technicians, and, geophysical exploration field campaigns in Malawi and Tanzania.

Internal Auditor: The head of Audit Section is responsible for seeking the approval of senior management and the acceptance by Council of a formal written document (Charter) for the internal auditing department. The auditor is not responsible for preventing fraud, other irregularities or errors. Management procedures should be designed to give the auditor a reasonable expectation of detecting any material misstatements, whether intentional or unintentional, in an entity’s financial statements.
The auditor should normally report to senior management of an entity all fraud; other irregularities or material errors brought to light by the audit. The auditor may also make recommendations of good practice in order to assist in the prevention of further occurrences.
Management: The responsibility within an entity for the prevention of fraud, other irregularities and errors rests with management. As part of its business responsibilities, management has the fiduciary role of safeguarding assets, by virtue of their management positions they are regarded in law as acting in a stewardship capacity concerning the property under their control.Management objective may be accomplished by incorporating some of the following control measures: -
* Installation of an effective accounting system
* Operation of an appropriate system of internal control (including authorization controls and controls covering segregation of duties)
* Ensuring that employees under their control understand relevant codes of conduct
* Monitoring relevant legal requirements and ensuring that operating procedures and conditions meet these requirements
Independence: Internal auditors should be independent of the activities they audit, and could only be perceived as independent when they carry out their work freely and objectively. Independence permits them to render the impartial and unbiased judgments essential to the proper conduct of audits.
Integrity: Internal auditors should review the reliability and integrity of financial and operating information and the means used to identify, measure, classify, and report such information
Compliance: Internal Auditors should review the systems established to ensure compliance with those policies, plans, procedures, laws, regulations, and contracts which could have a significant impact on operations and reports, and should determine whether the organization is in compliance.
Safeguarding of assets: The Internal Auditors should review the means used to safeguard assets from various types of losses such as those resulting from theft, fire, improper or illegal activities, and exposure to elements
Due professional care: Internal auditors should exercise due professional care in performing internal audits. Due professional care calls for the application of the care and skill expected of a reasonably prudent and competent internal auditor in the same or similar circumstance

Vision and Mission Statements

Our Vision is an audit, review and consulting services unit, providing exceptional service by independent reviews of all University Group operations, activities, policies and procedures and where warranted, recommending cost effective control and solutions for improvements in systems, processes and operations.Our Mission is to meet and exceed University Council, Executive Management and other Stakeholder assurance expectations within NUST governance framework and in accordance with the Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing.Departmental Staff
