Faculty of Engineering

Kindly be advised that the Faculty of Engineering Handbooks for 2016, 2017 and 2018 have been withdrawn.

It is now more that 30 years since Mangosuthu Technikon now Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) started offering National Diploma Engineering programmes. Over these years there have been significant improvements in the content and quality of these programmes, which include: Chemical, Civil, Surveying, Construction Management and Quantity Surveying, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineering, with each one running a bridging programme. The Chemical Engineering Department has been offering a B. Technology degree for almost 10 years.

There has also been an increasing focus on research capacity development. Presently the Faculty of Engineering is active in the following areas:

  • Water research
  • Renewable energy
  • Wind energy
  • Intelligent control
  • Road safety

The Faculty is working hard to ensure that there is greater research collaboration with industry and other tertiary institutions and organisations.

Another area that the Faculty is focusing on is SMME (small, micro and medium enterprise) development. Through the Department of Science and Technology initiated Technology Stations Programme, the Faculty of Engineering, collaborating with the Faculty of Natural Sciences, has done sterling work in technology transfer to SMMEs manufacturing chemicals.
