While South Africa’s government is still discussing the options for free or subsidised tertiary education, the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has announced bursaries available for candidates studying towards a university degree in BEng / BSc Civil Engineering.

Engineering students sanral bursaryConsideration will be given to needy students who have successfully completed their first year of undergraduate study or those currently registered for 2nd, 3rd, 4th year and post graduate studies. However, strongly motivated applications from matriculants with at least 70% for mathematics and science students studying towards the above Engineering fields, and registered with a University will also be considered.

The bursary offered by Sanral is a full bursary, covering tuition, registration, accommodation, meals, books and equipment, as well as compulsory excursions and seminars. In addition, Sanral allocates a Project Manager to assist students with information required for their academic projects, as well as offering internships.

In order to qualify, applicants should not be a recipient of any other bursary or financial assistance from any institution and must be registered or about to register at a recognised tertiary education institution in South Africa. Only South African citizens are eligible for a Sanral bursary.

Engineering students in South Africa now also have an additional tertiary institution at which they can pursue their studies. Monash South Africa (MSA) has added a Bachelor of Engineering programme to its offerings – the first private higher education institution to offer a course that is reviewed by the Engineering Council of South Africa.

The first intake into the greater engineering faculty will be in February, and all classes that form part of the Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme will be conducted at MSA’s campus, in Ruimsig, Roodepoort. This will be a full-time programme of a minimum of four years in the mainstream programme and a minimum of five years in the extended programme, giving graduates a National Qualifications Framework Level 8 qualification.

“The shortage of skilled engineers has a widespread effect on South Africa, affecting the country’s functioning in the globalised business environment and economy. Upon graduating with this degree, a student’s skills will be in high demand,” says MSA executive Dean Yashin Brijmohan.
