Engineering Day (26 August 2023)

This year we will host an Engineering Day, which will take place on a Saturday, 26 August 2023. During this day learners will have the option to attend one of the following sessions:

  • Chemical and Minerals Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer and Electronic Engineering, and Mechatronic Engineering (one session for all three programmes)
  • Mechanical Engineering and Electromechanical Engineering (one session for both programmes)

The cost of attending this Engineering Saturday will soon be shared. This will includes lunch, light snacks, a T-shirt, as well as all activities (fun projects). If you cannot afford this, please register anyway. There are sponsorships available for achievers.
