34 Potchefstroom Chemical Engineering and Chemical Engineering with Minerals Processing

Chemical Engineers are involved in the research, design, development and management of industrial processes where raw materials are converted to products with higher economic value. For instance, turn corn to cornflakes, hops to beer, coal to petrol and algae to electricity.  The chemical industry is one of the greatest gross domestic product contributors in South Africa. Chemical engineering is one of the top 10 scarce skills in South Africa.

Minerals Processing is a specialist field in Chemical Engineering and deals with the physical and chemical processes used especially to extract metals from ores. The chemical industry is one of the greatest gross domestic product contributors in South Africa. Chemical engineering is one of the top 10 scarce skills in South Africa.

  • Chemical manufacturers and other industries, such as: petroleum refining, synthetic fuel manufacture, food processing, brewing, minerals processing, paper and pulp, pollution control, manufacture of synthetic fibres, fertilizers and explosives
  • Consulting firms
  • Government departments
  • Universities

Electrical and Electronic Engineers enable the modern world by moving electrical energy from the source to the point of application. They do this as efficiently as possible, by applying their knowledge of power systems, power conversion, power conditioning, and electrical machines. Training provided by leading experts in power quality, power electronics and electrical machines, sets NWU Electrical and Electronic Engineers apart in industry. Our engineers thrive in power utilities and electrical consulting industries and relate well to the challenges of utilizing renewable energy sources as part of the energy solution of the future. Electrical and Electronic engineering is the number one scarce skill in South Africa.

HEQSF alignment

All universities in South Africa were obligated by law to take part in a National Project driven by the regulatory bodies (Department of Higher Education an Training (DHET), the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), to align all qualifications with the Higher Education Qualification Sub Framework (HEQSF). The NWU is thus currently in an ongoing process of aligning our qualification and programme offering with the requirements of  the HEQSF.

Prospective students must take notice of the fact that NWU qualification names, programme names as well as the composition of curricula may change due to the HEQSF Project, prior to registration for the 2018 academic year.
Successful candidates are advised to contact the relevant faculty in order to ensure that they register for the correct qualification, programme and /or curriculum.
