Message from the Dean

It is my pleasure to welcome all students to Walter Sisulu University in general and specifically to the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.

The main objective of the Faculty is that all students should complete their studies successfully within the stipulated period, and graduate with a qualification that meets their needs and those of society, including industry and commerce. 

The Faculty, therefore, wishes to inculcate skills that students will need to start their own businesses and establish themselves as service providers to local communities. 

This prospectus aims to provide new and returning students with an understanding of the Faculty structure and the programmes offered by the various departments. 

It is the aim of the Faculty, through this prospectus, to guide students in the selection of the programmes they wish to follow. However, should students find it difficult to select a programme using the prospectus, they are encouraged to approach the Heads of Departments for assistance.

While academic work should be the cornerstone of a student’s focus, there are, however, many other activities that students can engage in at the University. 

During their spare time, students are encouraged to participate in activities that are offered by the various student societies. In addition, all student class representatives are encouraged to take their roles very seriously, attend all the scheduled meetings and participate in all the discussions for the benefit of the students they represent and for the benefit of the Faculty and Walter Sisulu University.

On behalf of the Faculty,  I once again welcome all students. It is our hope that you will find your studies a stimulating and rewarding experience in the faculty.

Dr M Siswana
