The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology is comprised of six departments, namely the Department of Built Environment, Department of Civil Engineering, Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and the Department of Information Technology.
The programmes offered in the departments of the Faculty are designed to equip diplomates and graduates with the necessary skills and expertise to be leaders in their chosen professions. The key to the Faculty’s success lies in the high premium it places on innovation, along with the work that is done by different role players and stakeholders to promote the Faculty’s and CUT’s achievements in the fields of Science, Engineering and Technology. This is achieved through a benchmarking system, which ensures that training and research programmes always meet the highest standards.
All the departments within the Faculty have extensive laboratory and computer facilities, and are well equipped to support a practical, project-oriented approach to learning. Programmes are career focused, with some requiring a year-long Work-Integrated Learning component at diploma level. Through the different advisory boards that meet on a regular basis, close contact is maintained with industry and the private sector in the effort to ensure that learning programmes remain relevant.
The research conducted within the Faculty is of an applied nature and is directed at the needs of industry and the community at large. Research projects are generally well supported by local, national and international partners.
The Faculty’s aim is to deliver world-class teaching and research while appreciating the need to be appropriately responsive to its African roots.
