Engineering Career Days
The School of Engineering recently hosted Grade 12 learners at Engineering Career Days at the UNITE Building on the Howard College campus.
The top 10 learners in mathematics and physics at various schools were invited with 313 pupils attending to hear about the various Engineering disciplines from staff and postgraduate students.
Mrs Denise O’Reiley from Student Academic Services at the College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science told the youngsters about the requirements, subjects and points needed to get into Engineering at UKZN.
Female learners were specifically targeted on one of the days. All the girls were given pink hard hats and were encouraged to take up Engineering as a career through the School’s "Engineering is a Girls Thing" initiative.
