Civilution Congress puts spotlight on Engineering Skills Deficit

Engineering skills remain the most difficult for companies to fill. According to the Top 100 scarce skill occupations in South Africa list released by the Department of Higher Education and training (DHET), engineering skills occupy the first 20 spots.

In order to effectively tackle the skills deficit, it is imperative that the public and private sector continue to support skills training and development.

Which begs the question, what are engineers doing to ensure that skills and education remain on top of the agenda to fill the gaping skills deficit, with a view to create professionally registered and competent engineering capacity for South Africa?

Be sure to join industry leaders at Civilution – the largest gathering of engineers this South Africa has seen, as they explore and debate the issue knowledge transfer, building engineering skills and many more hot topics. Book 4 delegates today and get the 5th FREE!

  1. the skills shortage is the topic of my paper in the legal section on day 1. I am supported by a number of small conference organisers who are able to attract good numbers of engineering personnel to a technical course. Support for SAICE and CESA from their members is very low.
