Engineering Student Academic Chapter

The engineering student academic chapter (SAC) is a group of senior students from the faculty that represents engineering students. At the NWU, we choose new SAC's annually.

SAC's act as the link between students and the faculty, help students with any complaints/queries that they may have, guide them to the right direction and organise events for current and prospective students, among others.


Workshop Practice safety induction and preparation

All first year engineering students are required to complete a workshop practice safety induction and preparation assessment. If you were not able to attend the online session, click here to access the presentation.
