Meet the staff


To produce innovative, adaptive and socially engaged professionals capable of leveraging engineering and technological skills for the development of South African and global society.



To produce socially responsible graduates attuned to the needs of industry, the environment and the community.


To engage in research and development activities that are responsive to national and international challenges in clearly defined areas of strength.


To provide curricula that stimulate creativity and innovation to generate new knowledge and solutions.


To foster a people centered culture of accountability and shared responsibility.


The undergraduate programme in electronic engineering, which leads to the internationally accredited BEngTech degree, is designed to provide a 

broad foundation in electronic engineering through a combination of classroom lectures, online tools and extensive hands-on technical training and laboratory work and prepares the student for a career in the variety of electronic engineering fields as well as becoming a competent practicing engineering technologist or certificated engineer that will make a meaningful contribution to the economy and national development.

The programme will provide the student with a strong foundation in mathematics, physical sciences and the core fundamentals of engineering and blends theory, concept and application. Electronic engineering finds itself at the heart of the burgeoning Industry 4.0 and merges fields such as instrumentation, control systems, telecommunications, embedded and intelligent systems, data analytics and machine learning, automation and robotics, signal and image processing, smart factories and cities, green energy and the industrial IoT.

Some of the key attributes of the programme include the fostering of lifelong learnership, the need for continuous improvement, teamwork and the attainment of solid critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The BEngTech qualification will also allow for further study through articulation into the proposed postgraduate BEngTech Honours programme and, subsequently, a possible opportunity for Masters and Doctoral research.

Qualified candidates may register with the internationally affiliated Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as Professional Engineering Technologists.
