Priscilla Mnyandu, Director: Technical Services, Office of the Surveyor-General, Nelspruit

Priscilla Mnyandu hails from uMbumbulu, a few kilometres south of Umlazi Township. Although she was a chorister during her teens, she was adamant that she wanted something more challenging than following a musical profession. She knew she wanted to be an engineer and was undeterred even though she was given solo parts in the MUT choir. “I knew one day, I would make a mark as a woman in engineering. Today, I am proud to say that I have spent six years of my 22-year-career in civil engineering as a director in the Office of the Surveyor-General. I have two managers and about 80 staff members within my office alone,” said a very conservative Priscilla. “I work on technical equipment, including IT, maintenance of cadastral documents and sectional titles. In addition, I research all the information in connection with cadastral requirements.”
