The Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment (FEBE) is one of seven faculties in the University of Johannesburg. It offers both Engineering Technology and Engineering Science undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across 12 departments under five Schools. In keeping with the University’s comprehensive status, the Faculty is the first in South Africa to offer global education to a full range of professional engineering qualifications.
As it is a common practice with all South African universities, South African applicants to the University of Johannesburg are required to apply in advance for admission into their preferred course by no later than the end of September.
Therefore, prospective South African matriculants must apply for their preferred course of study before the completion of their matric year. As of 2013, the University of Johannesburg has adopted a “no walk-in” policy and therefore, prospective and current students are required to apply for admission and complete their registration online.
