contains detailed information on degree programmes and their requirements.
PDE: Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering
This is a one-year postgraduate diploma for BSc or BTech graduates, or students who have a Bachelor's degree in a discipline other than the one they want to pursue on a postgraduate level. It can also be followed by Engineering graduates. This one-year programme is offered in the fields of Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Mineral Engineering. The aims of the PDE are to prepare students for further postgraduate studies in Engineering or to enable them to convert to a Master's programme.
The Faculty offers Master's Programmes in Engineering that lead to the qualifications Master of Science in Engineering (MScEng) and Master of Engineering (MEng) in the following fields: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Extractive Mineral Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronic Engineering.
MScEng: Master of Science in Engineering
The MScEngprogramme (240 credits) is an in-depth study that exceeds the BEng, BScHons, BEngSci or PDE. It is a research Master's degree with a thesis (minimum 160 credits) as requirement for graduation. Students may be required to complete a number of supplementary modules that are prescribed as necessary, according to the nature of their thesis. Depending on the department concerned, these modules may contribute up to 80 credits of the 240 credits required. In certain departments, a thesis alone is accepted.
MEng: Master of Engineering
The MEng programme (180
credits) succeeds the BEng, PDE, BScHons or BEngSci.
It is a lectured programme compiled from a
number of prescribed modules (minimum 120 credits) according to each
department's requirements and an assignment (maximum 60 credits).
PhD: Doctor of Philosophy
Before being awarded a PhD degree, the candidate should show proof of original research, which contributes to knowledge in the engineering profession. This research is presented in the form of a dissertation. PhD programmes are offered in the following fields: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Extractive Metallurgical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronic Engineering.
DEng: Doctor of Engineering
The DEng may be awarded to persons whose total body of research may be regarded as making an extraordinary contribution towards engineering as a whole.
