Industrial Engineering Department Overview       

The Industrial Engineering degree programme at the University of the Witwatersrand falls in the School that offersMechanical,Industrial andAeronauticalEngineering.

First- and second-year curricula in the School are common for the three degree programmes offered (Mechanical, Industrial, and Aeronautical Engineering); students may therefore transfer between these programmes at any time up to the beginning of the third year of study.

Students from all other Engineering Schools in the Faculty (Chemical and Metallurgical, Civil and Environmental, Electrical and Information, Mining) having completed the second year of study, also satisfy the criteria for entry into the Industrial Engineering degree programme, and may hence transfer at third year level.

Entrance criteria to academic programmes

Entry to the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering is determined by a points system based on performance in the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination. The likely acceptance level is 36 points and above. This is the minimum rating for an application to be considered.  Also, only those candidates that have passed English as the Language of Learning and Teaching (LOLT), Home Language or 1st Additional language with an NSC level 4 scale of achievement (50 - 59%) or higher will be considered. Similarly, only those candidates that have passed both Mathematics and Physical Science with an NSC level 5 scale of achievement (60 - 69%) or higher will be considered. Maths Literacy candidates are not eligible to study in the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering.
