A major concern in the engineering sector has been the age gap between professionally registered engineers and graduate/candidate engineers. This article describes how the eThekwini Municipality's Engineering Unit is tackling this concern, and succeeding. Since 2002, eThekwini's Engineering Unit has been fulfilling a Commitment and Undertaking (C&U) that was signed by the then City Engineer, Keith Barnett. Under this C&U agreement the Engineering Unit has developed a Candidate Engineering Programme that is second to none. Since 2002 various academics and professionals have also added to this programme and moulded it into a winning formula. I myself am a product of this programme (I attained my professional registration in August 2014).
