At Technikon SA credit for Mechanics I will be granted to candidates who have passed Engineering Science N4 and Mechanotechnics N5 with at least 50%; credit for Fluid Mechanics II will be granted to candidates who have passed Fluid Mechanics N5 and N6 with at least 50%; credit for Thermodynamics II will be granted to candidates who have passed Power Machines N5 and N6 with at least 50%; for credits from other institutions contact the institution concerned), or

(d) A Government Certificate of Competency.

Prospective students with qualifications in other disciplines must present their qualifications and work experience, together with a letter from their employer motivating their registration on the B.Tech: Pulp and Paper.

ND: Pulp and Paper Technology

SAQA NLRD: 
72257

A learner achieving this qualification will be competent in applying theoretical knowledge, engineering principles, proven techniques, practical experience, and appropriate skills to the solution of well defined problems in the field of pulp and paper technology. This qualification is designed to prepare students for positions as operational staff in the pulp and paper industry.

Requirements: 

In addition to the Institution's General Minimum Admission Rule, the applicant must meet the following minimum requirements:

Mathematics – rating code 4 (adequate achievement), and
Physical Science – rating code 4 (adequate achievement)

Students who did not write the Mathematics Paper 3 (Geometry Paper) will be required to attend an additional Mathematics I sub-module which will be run concurrently with the normal Mathematics I course. The onus is on the students to prove that they wrote the Mathematics Paper 3 otherwise they will be required to attend the additional Mathematics I sub-module.

Alternatively, a matriculation certificate, with at least a D symbol (Higher Grade) or B symbol (Standard Grade) in Physical Science and Mathematics. A pass in the subjects Technical Drawing and/or Computer Studies will be an added recommendation.

Applicants who do not have the required matric symbols/ratings in Mathematics or Physical Science, but have passed Mathematics 1, Chemistry 1 and/or Physics 1 at an accredited tertiary educational institution will also be considered for entry into the program.

In addition to the above requirements, bursary students will have to meet additional criteria prescribed by their sponsor company, which may include interviews, psychometric assessments, and work based skills tests. Favourable results of such assessments can also mitigate for lower matric symbols/ratings, subject to the minimum institutional requirements.

A person who wants to embark on a career in the pulp and paper industry must have a basic knowledge of Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and a logical mind. An aptitude for solving practical process problems in a team environment is essential.

NC(V) SYSTEM
In addition to the relevant General Rules pertaining to the Registration (e.g. Rules G3 – G10), learners must, as a minimum, have obtained the following NC (V) subjects results:

English (First Additional) 3 (competent: 60-69%)
Mathematics 3 (competent: 60-69%)
Physical Science 3 (competent: 60-69%)

Note that the subject Mathematical literacy will not be accepted as a substitute for the subject Mathematics. Students who did not write the Mathematics Paper 3 (Geometry Paper) will be required to attend an additional Mathematics I sub-module which will be run concurrently with the normal Mathematics I course. The onus is on the students to prove that they wrote the Mathematics Paper 3 otherwise they will be required to attend the additional Mathematics I sub-module.
