Electromechanical engineers ensure the safe and efficient operations of plants and factories by combining elements of electrical and mechanical engineering. Their knowledge of electrical machines, power electronics, strength of materials and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, together with legal knowledge with respect to occupational health and safety make them invaluable to industry.

Electromechanical engineering is under the top 10 scarce skills in South Africa.

Any mine or manufacturer in South Africa and abroad will greatly benefit from your skills.
