The purpose of the programme is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying fundamental engineering sciences and/design and synthesis and related principles to specific engineering systems problems of society at large. One of the main objectives in this process is to develop an advanced capability to conduct fundamental Systems Engineering and engineering research independently. It also promotes a lifelong learning approach.
Bachelor Honours degree or NQF level 8 equivalent from programmes within engineering or Bachelor of Technology that is supported by considerable research experience and postgraduate learning or work experience at NQF level 8, may be admitted to study towards the degree qualification. Students are selected based on academic merit and an approved field(s) of study. A minimum average mark of 65% in the previous degree qualification, is generally required – this is as per the UJ higher degrees policy. Candidates from related fields may be requested to take additional engineering modules at undergraduate level to ease their transition to the field of Systems Engineering.
