Announcing a one-day industry workshop on the revised suite of engineering qualifications in South Africa. ECSA and the HEQC have approved comprehensive changes to the structure of engineering diplomas, and introduced an entirely new three-year Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree. These changes will directly affect engineering industries, particularly in terms of post-qualification training and implications of the impending Identification of Engineering Work Regulations. The workshop will provide an opportunity for industry to explore and discuss concerns about the changing structure of the engineering qualifications and industry needs in South Africa.

Participants in the workshop will:

  • Learn about the structure and role of the new engineering qualifications;
  • Discuss graduate readiness and training, including the role of workplace learning and work-integrated learning;
  • Examine professional registration categories and implications of new legislation;
  • Consider technical career paths and international standards.


Who should attend?

Engineering professionals, technical managers, members of voluntary associations, human resource managers and practitioners, academics.

Pre-workshop survey:

Whether attending the workshop or not, all are invited to fill out a brief survey on industry needs, opinions of engineering qualifications, and graduate readiness. The results will be used to direct the workshop discussions.
