Life skills training for engineering students a success
November 26, 2014 Editor 0
According to professional services firm SMEC South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal-based office, its workplace integrated learning and training initiative for civil engineering students from previously disadvantaged communities – the life skills training programme that has been incorporated into the Durban University of Technology’s (DUT’s) Singakwenza Ndawonye training scheme run on the Pietermaritzburg Campus in KwaZulu-Natal – is yielding positive results. SMEC KwaZulu-Natal regional head Kresen Manicum tells Engineering News that the company started working with the Singakwenza Ndawonye training scheme in 2003, by offering several final year engineering DUT students an opportunity to complete their in-service training to meet their diploma requirements.
