Dean's Message



 

Engineering is a discipline focussed on problem solving. Engineers use maths and science to achieve extraordinary objectives and find solutions to some of the world's most complex challenges. We can think of engineering as a very simple problem solving process such as creating a digital timer to a momentous project such as building a suspension bridge connecting two masses of land.

 

At the Faculty of Engineering and Technology we prepare our students to be learned in the art and science of problem solving and to develop an understanding what can or cannot be done and how to do it, given a problem. Engineering education is not just confined to classroom activities, but continues beyond that. Being lifelong learners in a world that is increasingly dependent on technology is a very important trait as engineers. Future engineers must be able to think beyond normal.

 

All our programmes (i.e. diploma, foundation, bachelors degree, masters and PhD) are accreditated by the accreditation bodies, and we are determined to continually improve the teaching and learning experience of our students. At the same time, we are committed to provide our students with rigorous, cutting-edge and industry-relevant education to enable them to secure a steady foothold in the job market upon graduation. Our good track record of high graduate employability is a testimony of this. Industrial Revolution 4.0 is already upon us and the faculty s committed to move together with this trend.

 

On behalf of the faculty, I welcome you to the Faculty of Engineering and Technology as you take your first step towards an education in engineering. Lastly, I hope that you would take the time to visit our website to explore and discover what the faculty can offer you. We look forward to sharing this remarkable journey with you.
