We pride ourselves in our industry relevance. We are alive with intellectual energy and commitment. We aspire to identify and develop exceptional engineering talent on a one on one basis.
I have seen many of our students holding positions in the front ranks of engineering management, research and teaching. We choose our students with great attention and care precisely because we are so deeply invested in their development and in that of the society they will serve.
Our vision for the NWU Faculty of Engineering is to become a faculty of choice for studying in Engineering in South Africa. This will be achieved by focusing on five primary areas, which are:
Excellence in teaching and learning
Innovation of research
The commercialisation of expertise has always been a priority for us and will be pursued even stronger. The reason for this is the fact that we want our graduates to get good experience on practical applications in the world. This commercialisation will also make the university more relevant to the community and the industry. I believe that the Mission and Vision statement below can be used as a guideline to reach our goals.
Be prepared to grow, thrive and succeed.
