SAICE Membership Stats - Active Branch Distribution
Dr Chris Herold speaks out on kykNET about Municipal Water Infrastructure
Nice try but no cigar
Arising from the curd of the Cubangate chronicles, is the perception that South African engineering practitioners snobbishly refuse to work in the public sector, particularly in the rural municipalities. I imagine the Minister drew this conclusion from extensive investigation, study and research. To help verify the Minister’s claims, we conducted an exploratory survey of the membership of SAICE, the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE) and the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE) – the three largest engineering professional institutions in South Africa.
We are extremely pleased to present to you our July edition of #EngAge.
As always, we look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions.

The finals of AQUALIBRIUM, the exciting SAICE-AECOM Schools Water Competition 2015, was held at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, Johannesburg, on Friday 31 July 2015. This competition affords learners the opportunity of designing, constructing and operating a water distribution network exactly the way civil engineering practitioners in local authorities and metros would do. They encounter all the same challenges/problems that occur in real-life situations.
