Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Why Study the Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering?

The Bachelor of Engineering programme offered at IIE MSA is accredited by the CHE and endorsed by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA). The Engineering Council of South Africa is the only signatory in Africa to the Washington Accord, therefore allowing for global recognition.

The shortage of skilled engineers has a widespread effect on South Africa and the African continent at large, affecting the country’s functioning in the globalised business environment and economy. Upon graduating with this degree, your skills will be in high demand, making you sought after by potential employers.

You will be well-prepared to enter into the industry upon graduating, as, unlike traditional engineering programmes, this degree will expose you to the role of engineering in the real world as early as the first year of the programme. Our programme ensures that you are equipped with first-hand experience of the value that engineering adds to improving the quality of lives in communities.
This qualification will provide you with the basic skills, knowledge and insights to reach a deeper understanding of managing the built environment, through the application of the principles learnt throughout the programme.

The programme will be offered in two streams; namely the four-year mainstream programme and the five-year extended programme. The purpose of the extended programme is to offer students the opportunity to complete the first two years of the mainstream programme over a period of three years. The credit allocation for the first two years of the programme will therefore be spread over three years and allow the student to make a smooth transition into tertiary education.

Successful completion of this programme leads to an IIE qualification.

Career Opportunities

The programme prepares graduates to assume engineering positions within private consultation firms and development laboratories, and with large and small private enterprises involved with the design, development, production, and marketing of electronic systems, subsystems and components of products.

Opportunities may also be available in government and non-profit organisations. Private consulting positions or creating opportunities in an entrepreneurial role are further options. Graduates may also choose to pursue a career in academia, either as a discipline-specific lecturer or researcher.

Duration
Mainstream programme

Minimum 4 years, full time study, for students gaining entry into the mainstream programme.

Extended programme

Minimum 5 years, full time study, for students gaining entry into the extended programme.

Accreditation

Accredited by the CHE. Registration: NQF Level 8, SAQA ID 112846

Fees for 2019

R94,750 (6,439.67 USD) per annum

Fees are subject to change annually.

Domestic/South African students are advised to pay 30% of their semester fee before enrolment and the balance by the published payment due date. Alternative payment arrangements can be applied for to pay each module in full before the commencement date of the module.

Payment dates are earlier if you are a commencing international student. This is to allow 6-8 weeks for your study visa applications to be processed prior to enrolment. To avoid delays obtaining a study visa, commencing international students must pay a 30% deposit before enrolling to allow 6-8 weeks for study visa applications and 50% balance on or before enrolment.
