 Mining and Factory Professionals

Certificated Mechanical or Electrical Engineers in mining and factory are the professional engineering practitioners recognised by law in South Africa to accept legal responsibility to improve health and safety in mines and works.  These Engineers need to provide solutions reliant on basic scientific, mathematical and engineering knowledge, supported by analysis and synthesis, and underpinned by sound techno-economic analysis.  Solutions must take into account the needs of society and the protection of the physical environment.
