Academic Programmes

The School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering offers undergraduate and postgraduate accredited degrees. We also offer postgraduate short courses and a dual degree in Aeronautical Engineering through Wits University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

All of our first degrees in engineering are fully accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa under the Washington Accord. Career opportunities for engineers are limitless, extending beyond the engineering sector.

Students and delegates in our postgraduate short courses come from a wide variety of industries, so class interaction and lively discussion is always a feature of the Wits courses. All courses feature a combination of lectures and case study material, to ensure that you leave the course with knowledge that can actually be applied in the workplace.

As Wits takes its learning online during the Covid-19 Lockdown period, you can view the Students Online Learning Primer to help you prepare for the online curriculum.
