The Technical Sciences Faculty

ABOUT The Technical Sciences Faculty


The Technical Faculty comprises of a group of highly qualified engineering professionals that have been industrially trained with specific skills in their respective fields. This is to ensure that each student receives correct guidance and quality advice. These skills aid in developing, encouraging and motivating students, whilst providing individualized academic support to each and every engineering student that is willing to learn. Supplementing this service offered, we provide our future engineers with additional academic guidance (apart from their given study material), in the form of: tutorials; mock tests; past year papers; video links; support material links as well as personalized tips. This additional support helps the student comprehend and apply the module/ subject with success, thus molding them to be engineers of exceptional quality and performance.
