BTech in Industrial Engineering
2 Years Part Time


The programme provides students with the skills and knowledge to analyse, design and improve manufacturing and related services.

Take note: After completion of the B Tech and a minimum of three years industrial experience a candidate may apply to the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) for registration as a professional engineering technologist.

(Please note that these are the specific programme admission requirements - the university has its own minimum admission requirements.)


  • Students must have a 65% average for the National Diploma; or

  • 55% average for the National Diploma with proof of registration with the Engineering Council of South Africa; or

  • A 60% average for the National Diploma and two years post diploma working experience.

  • Other and non-South African qualifications will be considered based on SAQA reports and merit and may require the submission of curricula and learning material. These applicants may be required to complete a language proficiency module.

Purpose Statement
Persons achieving this qualification will be able to analyse and solve independently complex open-ended manufacturing and service-related problems through the application of accepted Industrial Engineering techniques.  They will be able to assess complex systems and calculate expected system performance.  The qualification is intended for engineering practitioners in industry.

The qualified person will be able to register with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as a Professional Technologist-in-Training in the field of Industrial Engineering.
