Bachelor of Technology in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology

The objective of this programme is to offer education and training in electrical and electronic engineering technology. The programme prepares the candidates to function as engineering technologists. The engineering technologist is normally skilled in the art of production of artefacts, structures, and systems on the basis of designs prepared by the engineer. The graduates of this programme shall thus in the first instance be equipped with the skills to understand and accurately interpret engineering designs. Because the special strength of the graduate from this programme is to be a ‘hands-on’ person, considerable emphasis is placed on giving the candidate considerable practical knowledge in engineering technology.
