oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - A look at the future of engineering in South Africa : Part 1 : engineering in South Africa

Volume 24, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



This short series is in response to an earlier article titled "Engineering posts difficult to fill, where are we going?" published in the SAICE News of 12 July 2013. Although that article appeared more than two years ago, the issues are still real. Engineering remains the key profession in the development of South Africa, but this still appears to be poorly understood by major role players in the country. In this article, and in Parts 2 and 3, I would like to express my views on the subject and off er some suggestions on going forward. None of the ideas expressed are cast in stone, and many readers may disagree with some or all of the proposals. The idea, however, is to put engineering back in the forefront of development. Perhaps these few articles could act as a catalyst for discussion as we move towards the Civilution 2016 Congress.
