Engineering

A bachelor’s degree is a post-secondary degree awarded after completed 120 credits. It usually takes eight semesters to complete a Bachelor’s degree. While completing an undergraduate course, candidates have to study general courses and chose a major specific subject. A Bachelor’s degree can also be called a baccalaureate in certain countries.

Students of a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering will study the general concepts of engineering. This will allow them to choose a degree of their preference in order to specialize. The program is aimed at students who are not sure of what engineering degree they want to study.

A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa, has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaner and English as well as Dutch. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love interacting with the Bantus here and the tropical climate of the region.
