Career opportunities

After graduating with your BEngTech degree, you will find employment relevant to your studied discipline. To fully develop your career opportunities, you must register with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as a candidate Professional Engineering Technician / Technologist.

Registration as a Professional Engineering Technician can take place after 3 years and Technologist after 4 years of suitable and documented Initial Professional Development (IPD) in your work place. Once registered with ECSA, professionals must maintain their status by ensuring Continuous Professional Development (CPD) through, among others, the attendance of relevant short courses.

Industrial Engineering technicians / technologists develop concepts, designs and systems for manufacturing processes and services. They work with many different specialists like material scientists, engineers, manufacturing and services team leaders, marketers and accountants to develop new efficient processes, quality assurance protocols and systems. Industrial engineering technicians / technologists are tasked to ensure that manufacturing plant or services rendered are optimally designed for customer satisfaction in terms of quality as well as being internationally competitive.

These technicians / technologists create computer renderings with 3-dimensional CAD programs to visualise and simulate design concepts. Industrial engineering technologists are high in demand in automated manufacturing and assembly plants as well as in large scale service industries.
