NATIONAL N DIPLOMA

CIVIL ENGINEERING

Pave the way for a sustainable future in Civil Engineering.

Why Choose the National N Diploma Programme?

Civil Engineers design, build, supervise, operate, and maintain construction projects in both the public and private sector. From the construction of roads, railways, airports, and bridges to the building of massive skyscrapers, the civil engineer plays a critical role in bringing these to life. Become one of the famous greats, like Lusanda Tyebileyo and Lerato Kotane, founders and creators of the 100% Black-owned female construction company.

We strive to develop within students the ability to think analytically and creatively, and to become effective problem solvers.
