A conceptual framework for partnerships between University and Industry emphasizing the need for Ngumzo (i.e. dialogue with harmony) is presented. This framework is based on the model of a microprocessor. Inputs that encompass University–Industry collaboration when processed lead to different outputs. It is being proposed that national policy and delivery of inputs to our national institutions are not sufficient to change the University–Industry relationships or partnerships. The alternative is that it will be the central role of each individual institution, in all its complexity, to pay more attention in the planning, management and evaluation of its technical education among other inherent activities. The experiences of assembling and marketing of the NUNTM PC at the Institute of Nuclear Science will be presented.
