We caught up with some of them to hear how post-student life has been treating them.

 

Marc Feinberg

1)      What is your current occupation?

I am currently working for Mercedes Benz South Africa, on their graduate development programme.

2)   Future plans and aspirations?

Sometime in the future I would like start my own manufacturing business or turn-around a struggling manufacturing business.

3)   In your opinion, what is the best invention to date that has benefited mankind, and why?

The internal combustion engine as it has enabled global mechanisation and the growth of numerous industries that have changed the way all people live.

4)   Why are you passionate about Industrial Engineering?

I am passionate about Industrial engineering as provides me with a general tool box of principles that can be applied to improve any process or system. I enjoy the element of creativity often required in finding a solution.

5)   Your life motto?

 KAIZEN: Today more than yesterday, better tomorrow than today!

 

Jarred Durbach

1)    What is your current occupation?

I am currently working for OIM as a consultant in their Operations Improvement Department.

2)   Future plans and aspirations?

In the short term I hope to learn as much as possible in a less formal way, especially from my colleagues and the work I am doing. After gaining some work experience (and capital) I plan on doing some world travelling, maybe head east to explore the world and learn from other cultures.

In the long term I aspire to start my own business, hopefully in the manufacturing industry. I want play my part in growing South Africa's economy but also believe working for yourself is the closest to being free a person can be.

3)   In your opinion, what is the best invention to date that has benefited mankind, and why?

I would say probably the printing press, kind of like a medieval internet, I think it fundamentally changed humanities ability to record and share knowledge. 

4)   Why are you passionate about Industrial Engineering?

I am passionate about Industrial Engineering, because its principles and tools are applicable to any, industry, process or organisation. I think of Industrial Engineering as taking a step back from any situation and then applying logic to make improvements. I believe Industrial Engineering provides a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to support you in anything you wish to do.

But mostly, I am passionate about Industrial Engineering, because nothing is more satisfying than finding an "obvious solution" to what others see as an insurmountable problem!

5)   Your life motto?

- "There are no such thing as problems, only hidden solutions" -  Go to the Gemba

 

Mthobisi Dlamini

1)     What is your current occupation?

“Logistics Planner”

I am responsible for the identification, implementation & monitoring of continuous improvement opportunities/ initiatives within logistics environment

 2)      Future plans and aspirations?

My immediate goal is to obtain a Baccalaureus Technologiae (BTech) in Industrial Engineering, and obtain a Fit for level certification in Business leadership with Rhodes Business School (Training Reflects and assess ones professional situation and clarify prospects to become aware of the requirements and expectations towards a leader) upon Baccalaureus Technologiae (BTech) and Fit for level certification completion;

I plan to obtain a Lean Six Sigma Training Certification. I am also looking forward to registering with ECSA as a professional Industrial Engineering Technologist.

 3)      In your opinion, what is the best invention to date that has benefited mankind, and why?

“Internet”

Internet is not just a computerized library but also a conceptual approach to solving the problem of data management.

I am still amazed with what the Internet will bring in future by just looking at what's been accomplished during my lifetime.

 4)       Why are you passionate about Industrial Engineering?

IE is exciting, fun, and a big challenge. It's never boring because it's constantly changing, and very much growing field.

IE’s are always thinking about how they can improve systems, products and technologies they’re working on

 “My analytical-thinking skills are applicable to my whole life, which is an important part of my life and it recharges me”.

 5)      Your life motto?

“To advance in life you must be seen and be heard”
