The EBIT Week is a four-day holiday programme presented by the Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology (EBIT) biannually for learners in Grade 10, 11 and 12. Prospective students are offered this hands-on opportunity to obtain information regarding all the disciplines offered in the School of Engineering, Built Environment and the School of Information Technology.

During this event, learners are introduced to the practical as well as the theoretical aspects in order to help them make sound career choices. As part of the programme, learners also obtain industry exposure on-site or off-campus. 

Following the rapid spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, higher learning institutions have been forced to suspend classes – with some shutting down indefinitely – which resulted in the cancellation or postponement of major and minor events- EBIT Week is one of these events.

The schools and university calendars may also be affected, and no longer coincide. It is within this context that the Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology decided that the EBIT Weeks 2020 be deferred until 2021. The new dates will be communicated in due course.

We trust that you will understand the situation, and consider applying to attend the EBIT Weeks in the future. 

We apologise for the frustration and the inconvenience incurred in this regard.
