PROJECT A: INCREASE CAPACITY OF FET COLLEGES AND STRENGTHEN LINKS BETWEEN NMMU AND SELECTED FET COLLEGES IN EASTERN CAPE

The objective of this project is to develop support for FET Colleges in order to increase capacity in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechatronics, and therefore strengthen the collabrative links between the NMMU and the FET Colleges listed below:

  • Port Elizabeth FET College
  • Eastern Cape Midlands FET College
  • Buffalo City College

The figure below shows the NMMU instructor, Trevor Stroud with five of the PE College staff members that attended the Basic Pneumatics course offered on 22-24 June. The PE College staff were very positive about the course as well as attending additional courses, with a  specific interest in the FluidSim software package. Also discussed in this first course were teaching methodologies such as how to evaluate students when teaching this kind of hands-on practical subject.
