 Applicants in possession of the National Certificate Vocational (NCV) will be selected according to the selection requirements as approved by Senate.  Candidates must also adhere to the general admission regulations for candidates who completed the N3, N4, N5 and N6 qualifications at a Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college.

Career Opportunities

The purpose of this qualification is to build the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills required for a student’s progression towards becoming a competent Practising Engineering Technologist. It is intended to subsequently empower the Candidate Engineering Technologist to demonstrate his/her ability to apply his/her acquired knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and values in the South African work environment.  The qualification is also designed to add value to the qualifying student in terms of personal enrichment, as well as status and recognition.

A person in possession of this qualification is able to:

  • competently apply an integration of theory, principles, proven techniques, practical experience and appropriate skills towards solving broadly defined problems in the field of Engineering, whilst operating within the relevant standards and codes;
  • demonstrate well-rounded general engineering knowledge, as well as systematic knowledge of the main terms, procedures, principles and operations of one of the disciplines of Engineering;
  • gather evidence from primary sources and journals using advanced retrieval skills, and also organise, synthesise and present the information professionally in a mode appropriate to the audience;
  • apply the acquired knowledge to new situations, both concrete and abstract, in the workplace or community;
  • identify, analyse, conduct and manage a project;
  • make independent decisions/judgements, taking into account the relevant technical, economic, social and environmental factors;
  • work both independently and as a member of a team, and also as a team leader;
  • relate engineering activity to health and safety, as well as environmental, cultural and economic sustainability;
  • meet the requirements for registration with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as a Candidate Engineering Technologist (at BEngTech level); and
  • demonstrate the capacity to explore and exploit educational, entrepreneurial and career opportunities, and to engage in professional development.
