Students to contact their relevant faculty administrator
Mr Rikus Kock, a First Instructor in the Civil Engineering laboratory passed away on Saturday 8 August 2020. Rikus was a unique member of the Civil Engineering team that took responsibility for numerous field installations of instrumentation and systems that supported the research of the Department. This included sensor installations in bridges and roads, geotechnical installations and hydropower units. This work took him all over the country, and he spent long hours ensuring that the systems provided reliable data to many staff and students.
Rikus was meticulous in his work and had a keen interest in all things technical. With an inquisitive mind he developed solutions to many measurement challengers and his installations will still deliver data for many years to come. Rikus was an avid Lego collector and builder in his free time.
His absence from the Department will be sorely missed, and we wish his family our deepest condolences in this trying time.
