Posted on February 05, 2010

The Community Partner Committee of the Community-Based Project Module (JCP) of the Faculty Engineering, the Built Environment and Information Technology met to plan the module and possible projects for 2010.  This will be the sixth year that students of the Faculty will be part of the compulsory undergraduate module. During, 2009 1295 students worked in 471 different projects.  It is expected that more than 1500 students will be registered for the module this year.  The Community Partner Committee mainly consists of community partners that have been accommodating students for the past five years.
