Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering

Why Study Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering?

The Bachelor of Engineering programme offered at IIE MSA is accredited by the CHE/HEQC 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. Unlike traditional engineering programmes, the IIE degree programme 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.
