Mechanical Engineering Technicians research, develop, design, manufacture and maintain machines, machine components and systems in various fields of application. They work on both power-producing machines, such as generators, and power-using machines, such as air-conditioners.

PLEASE NOTE: National Diplomas are being phased out from 2018 and will be replaced by 3-year Bachelor of Engineering Technology degrees.

Applications are invited for the new 3-year Bachelor of Engineering Technology degrees (BEngTech) starting at the Nelson Mandela University School of Engineering in January 2018. These degrees, developed in co-operation with industry and other Higher Education institutes will be available for the following Engineering disciplines: Civil, Electrical, Industrial and Mechanical. The degrees are endorsed by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) and accredited by the Council for Higher Education (CHE). A degree in Marine Engineering is scheduled to follow in 2018 subject to approval and SAQA registration.

Over and above academic progression by means of postgraduate studies, graduates with the BEngTech degree will be able to develop professional status via a candidacy phase culminating in registration with ECSA as professional Engineering Technologists or Technicians.
