Fire Engineering

A Fire Protection Engineer is an individual who, by formal training and professional experience, carries the necessary competency, and has the skills to provide guidance and direction to protect life, property and environment from threats posed by fire and its related mechanism. (SFPE)

Fire Engineering is a relatively new formally recognised speciality field of engineering in South Africa. Although having found a learned institution home within SAICE, it’s acknowledged and appreciated that our engineering base qualifications in South Africa span Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and others with many roads leading here. Regardless of starting point or stage of your journey, please join us in our effort to elevate the local technical competency in Fire Engineering and build an ethos of accountability and professionalism within our critical industry for both public safety and economic sustainability.

Geotechnical

Promoting expertise in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering, and working with engineering geologists in the allied field of rock mechanics.

Geotechnical

Rooted in African soil!

The purpose is to promote co-operation amongst scientists and engineers, to encourage the interchange of knowledge and ideas, to disseminate the results of research work or innovative construction techniques in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering, and to foster the application of safe, economic, practical and modern geotechnical methods in South Africa. These aims are achieved by active participation in affairs of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, by assisting in the organisation of the regional conferences and symposia, by arranging meetings throughout the year at various centres in the country, as well as educational courses for practising engineers, and the publication of a newsletter. Close ties are maintained with engineering geologists as well as those specialists in the allied field of rock mechanics.
