Postgraduate and Short Courses

The School offers postgraduate and short courses to support industry skills development over a broad spectrum of specialised programmes.

Our courses are taught by Wits lecturers and industry experts and are NQF level 9 approved.

Postgraduate courses can be taken as stand-alone short courses, either on an attendance only basis or to obtain a Wits Certificate of Competence.

The School supports access to all courses through a combination of recognition of prior learning and suitable postgraduate diplomas in engineering for all non-engineering qualified persons.

Our short courses are administered by Wits Enterprise.
