SAICE had an exhibition stand at the Sci-Bono Engineering Career Focus Week to promote and advance the engineering profession.
SAICE attended the Annual Career Awareness Day in Mamelodi, in Pretoria on Saturday 28 May 2016. It was held at the Evangelical Lutheran Church Pretoria Diocese and organised by the young league of the church to develop the learners from the local schools.
The South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE) has appreciation for the mammoth task of the Auditor General to establish the financial status of the almost 300 municipalities in South Africa.
“There is a human resource crisis in care that is driven partly by the government’s tolerance of incompetent staff.” The South African Health Review 2016 published a report on the dismal state (pun intended) of health care in the public sector, particularly on government’s inability to attract competent healthcare professionals to work in public healthcare facilities
SAICE in partnership with CESA and SAFCEC have developed an industry survey to see which University and University of Technology graduates are most sought after in the civil engineering, consulting and construction industries.
SAICE & SAFCEC in partnership will be hosting the Annual Awards Function for most outstanding engineering achievements for 2015/2016 on 13 October 2016 in Johannesburg.
To celebrate the beauty of the industry
To show the world that civil engineering can be visually pleasing
To celebrate the profession
To bring the profession to the layperson in a format that will be more readily understood
The meeting which was chaired by SAICE 2016 President Dr Chris Herold, was attended by a host of SAICE members who sit on the institutions panels, including chairpersons of Education and Training, Membership, Finance and Administration, Tom McKune, Bridgette Kerst and Martin van Veelen.
The Civilution movement, powered by the engineering industry, works toward removing hindrances that preclude engineering practitioners from doing what they should be doing.
