About the Faculty

​Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment. We aim to provide relevant quality-driven professional career education of an international standard. We also strive to be a student- and stakeholder-centred and quality driven in everything we do. We offer a portfolio of relevant, recognised and career-focused programmes that are locally relevant and internationally recognised.
​We produce well-rounded and socially responsible graduates attuned to the needs of the industry and the economy in an environment conducive to teaching and learning with technology. Being a research and innovation hub, we are responsive to the challenges of the country and continent in clearly defined areas of strength. Our faculty generate, integrate and apply knowledge to stimulate socio-economic development by partnering with communities and industries in sustainable development.

The Faculty consists of the following Departments:

Mechanical Engineering:

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines, which applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools.
The mechanical student will be trained to use principles of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, materials science, and structural analysis, along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and more.​

Civil Engineering:

Known for its outstanding reputation in research and training of the best engineers in the country, the Department of Civil Engineering continues to contribute to the advancement and preservation of civil industry in South Africa and across borders. Our graduates never go unnoticed and they are sought after locally and internationally. We have highly qualified lecturers, who are considered experts in all disciplines of civil engineering. The departmental staff members are research active in all disciplines of civil engineering, hence we offer postgraduate opportunities up to the doctoral level.​

Electrical Engineering: 

In the Department of Electrical Engineering, our objective is to shape graduates who are inventive and highly skilled in becoming front-runners in their fields. We provide our students with exceptional groundwork in the codes of electrical engineering. From this base, they advance the aptitude to intellectualise, investigate and resolve difficulties. Together with our lecturers who are experts, we concentrate on working closely with industry so that the department remains at the forefront of electrical engineering developments internationally. Be a part of our innovative and thought-provoking programmes.​

Chemical, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering: 

Our Department encompasses three unique programmes in Chemical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering and Polymer Technology that students can select from. Our team of academic experts, technical and support staff are devoted to the idea of maintaining and building the department’s standing as a leading hub of research, knowledge and development in the fields of Chemical, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. Our students remain our most valuable stakeholders.  Academic staff members in the departments are experts in various field of engineering and apart from being committed lecturers, they are also actively involved in cutting edge research activities that span a range of area​s in Chemical, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.​
