Our graduates are at the forefront of a wide variety of professional engineering practices and also add the strengths of their engineering education to problem solving in related fields such as management, consulting, law, medicine, and government. In addition, a number of prestigious Research Units – structures operating at a national level and contributing to the development of local industry and policy – are hosted by the School.

The curriculum within the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment is structured to supply a solid grounding in fundamental engineering science, with an emphasis on generalised problem-solving skills.
The departments of Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineeringand Aeronautical Engineering have been at the forefront of engineering in South Africa for just over one hundred years.
Academics in the School are involved in a diverse range of research projects, including refrigerating and heat-pumping machines and systems, performance assessment and systems, retrofitting existing machinery and systems for improved performance, and automated fault diagnosis in machinery and systems.
Wits has teamed up with the world’s largest and most respected university that specialises in aviation and aerospace, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), to offer an internationally recognised postgraduate programme in Aeronautical Engineering.
Are you a postgraduate student looking for a supervisor? Our academic staff research interests range from race car vehicle dynamics and alternative fuels for internal combustion engines to shock waves and thermodynamic analysis and optimisation of thermal system.
