Becoming a student member of SAICE is your first step towards joining the biggest network of civil engineering professionals in South Africa. Not only will you enjoy all the physical benefits of membership, but you will also be benefiting your future career from an early stage.

A Student Member is a person who:

  • At the time of admission is a registered student at UNISA studying towards a National Diploma
  • Undergoes a regular course of training recognised for this purpose by Council.

For the first year, student membership with SAICE is free, thereafter a nominal annual fee is charged. Additional years of free membership may be granted on written application and on the condition that proof of registration as a full time student is submitted every year.

Note: Within 3 months after graduating, a student must upgrade his/her membership to an Associate member.
