Grooming future engineers

In an effort to educate learners about the different fields of engineering, the North-West University’s (NWU’s) Faculty of Engineering is hosting a four-day Engineering Week from 1 to 4 October.

More than 60 Grade 10 to 12 learners interested in studying engineering from across the country are currently attending the event.

During this week learners have the opportunity to learn more about what it entails to be an engineer. They also discover various options in the field of engineering and find out how much work is required to excel in the field.

The programme comprises various activities, including industrial, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering projects. Learners also take part in industry tours to expose them to the real world of engineering.
