About the Outreach Centre

The Outreach Office of the Faculty of Engineering was established in January 2007 to offer a variety of services to students (prospective and current), faculty and industry in its bid to meet the needs of all stakeholders.

It aims to:

    • develop and strengthen the relationships between the Faculty of Engineering and industry partners
    • provide career guidance services to secondary schools
    • engage the services of the engineering alumni to advise and train student engineers
    • inform students about internships and student exchange opportunities – locally, regionally and internationally
    • arrange seminars and workshops to facilitate student development
    • assist in the management of faculty events
    • identify and refer students in need of counselling services
    • inform students of financial assistance options, including bursaries and scholarships
    • help promote the activities of engineering student bodies such as the Engineering Student Society (ESS) and the Society of Tribology and Lubrication Engineers (STLE).
