 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. 

The Certificated Engineer brings to an engineering problem leadership, management, and a technologically specific approach, supported by financial, commercial, statutory, safety, and environmental knowledge as required. The Certificated Engineer manages interactions within and at the boundaries of the industry context and technology domain.





The Institution of Certificated Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, South Africa, invites all students studying towards their Engineering Certificate of Competency, and not younger than 18 years of age, to apply.  It is also expected that upon completion of studies that students become Corporate Members of the Institution of Certificated Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, South Africa. 

The Institution of Certificated Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, South Africa, aids students with their studies in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering (Heavy current) with of a Bursary fund program.   To be considered for this Bursary, the student is studying at a recognised South African university as a full-time student in either Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering (Heavy current). The student is in his or her second year of studies.
