Information regarding practical training should be the concern of all students.


Mechanical engineering students must gain six (6) weeks of industrial experience at the end of their 2nd and 3rd years of study. The aim is to develop an insight in the practical application of engineering science in industry and the related human relationships and safety aspects. The Engineering Council of South Africa requires this type of experience in the training of engineering students.
