Civil Engineering

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

A discipline of professional engineering, civil engineering has to do with designing, constructing and maintaining manmade structures such as dams, canals and roads. The term “civil” is used to distinguish this field from military engineering.

Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.

Masters in Civil Engineering in Africa 2017. Wits University offers the International Institute of Welding course leading to the IWE ( International Welding Engineer -[BScEng graduates]) and IWT ( International Welding Technologist [BTech graduates]). Wits University is an Approved Training Body (ATB) for the International Institute of Welding (IIW). Successful completion of the courses (60% min/each module and a 95% attendance record) entitles the candidate to apply for IIW registration. Benefits of the programme The intent is to equip candidates for a career in the welding industry, this implying an understanding of the practice of welding engineering underpinned by sound science. Curriculum Outline / Modules taught The MEng in Welding Wits is made up of 12 courses divided into four main modules. The modules are welding processes, welding metallurgy, welded joint design and fabrication, and applications and case studies. Closing dates Whilst late entries can be considered the desirable closing date for those completing the whole course is mid February. Whilst those who complete individual stand alone courses can register through the year, if individual courses are taken as part of, say a GDE, the February registration applies. Note: The GDE/ MEng qualifications will be replaced by the PGD/MScEng qualifications in 2017. Whislt the structure will change the intent is that the programme continue to offer the IWE/IWT curriculum. [-]
