Abstract: This study will explore curriculum alignment “as a major design element” (Squire, 2009) towards delivering a new and relevant undergraduate ICT curriculum for Universities of Technology (UoTs) in South Africa. The potential role of the UoT as a technology leader and human resource provider within the broader South African socio-political-economic landscape will be interrogated. The landscape for Higher Education is qualified mainly with respect to the newly proclaimed National Development Plan (2011), the Green Paper for Post-School Education and Training (2012) and Roy du Pre’s (2009) seminal work on the role of UoTs within the South African landscape.
