EP3    ADMISSION AND STUDY REQUIREMENTS

EP3.1 HIGHER DEGREES
       3.1.1 After successful completion of the BTech (or equivalent degree), candidates
             may, where applicable, register for a Masters Degree in Technology (Magister
             Technologiae – MTech).
       3.1.2 Successful completion of the MTech (or equivalent) degree may allow a
             candidate to register for a Doctoral Degree in Technology (Doctores
             Technologiae – DTech). Regulations on application and registration for a higher
             degree are contained in the “University of Johannesburg Postgraduate Research
             Manual”. This document can be obtained from the UJ Intranet, the offices of the
             Faculty Administrators, Faculty Research Manager or from the Office of the Dean
             of Research.

UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG
                     Faculty Regulations for Engineering and the Built Enviroment



EP3.2 STUDY FOR THE MASTERS DEGREE PROGRAMME
      3.2.1 Candidates for the Masters degree programme in Engineering are normally
            admitted for study on the grounds of a four year Bachelors degree in Engineering
            but in each case on recommendation of the Head of the relevant Department.
      3.2.2 Study towards the Masters degree programme in the Faculty can be undertaken
            in any of the following manners:
            (i)    A research and/or development project and the compilation of a
                   dissertation. The study is concluded by an oral presentation.
            (ii) Lectured Masters degrees consist of lectured modules and a minor
                   dissertation as determined by the Head of the relevant Department.
      3.2.3 A core requirement for the MIng and MPhil degrees is the development of a
            demonstrated ability to carry out own research in a fundamental manner. The
            ability can be developed by carrying out a pure research programme.
            Alternatively, the theoretical knowledge required at Masters’ level can be
            supplemented by coursework while the ability to carry out research is still
            demonstrated by a significant research component. To ensure that both the
            taught and research components are significant, each should comprise 50% of
            the programme credits.

EP3.3 DOCTORAL STUDY
      3.3.1 Candidates for doctoral study in Engineering are under normal conditions
            admitted on the grounds of a Masters degree in Engineering but in each case on
            recommendation of the Head of the relevant Department.
      3.3.2 Doctoral studies exist of independent research and developmental work and an
            applicable thesis. The study is concluded with a presentation.


EP4   REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

                              Research based

EP7.6.1Purpose of the qualification
       The aim of the qualification is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying
       fundamental engineering management sciences and/ design and synthesis and related
       principles to specific management systems problems of society at large. One of the
       main objectives in this process is to develop an advanced capability to do independent
       systems engineering and management research in a fundamental manner. It also
       enforces an approach to lifelong learning.

EP7.6.2Qualification outcomes
       Exit level outcomes
       The student is able to:
       1. Identify, assess, formulate, interpret, analyse and solve engineering research and
            development problems creatively and innovatively by applying relevant fundamental
            knowledge of i.a. mathematics, basic science and/or engineering and management
            sciences in the chosen field of research.
       2. Plan and manage engineering management research projects, demonstrating an
            underlying fundamental knowledge, understanding and insight into the principless,
            methodologies and concepts that constitute socially responsible (to local and other
            communities) research/development in the chosen field of research practice.

        3. Work effectively individually or with others as a member of a team, group, organisation,
            community or in multidisciplinary environments in the chosen field of research.
        4. Organise and manage him/herself and his/her activities responsibly, effectively,
            professionally and ethically and to take responsibility within his/her own limits of
            competence and to exercise judgement commensurate with knowledge and expertise,
            pertaining to the field of research.
        5. Plan and conduct applicable level of investigations, research and/or experiments by
            applying appropriate theories and methodologies and perform data analysis and
            interpretation.
        6. Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, with engineering and specifically
            research audiences and the community at large in so far as they are affected by the
            research using appropriate structure, style and graphical support.
        7. Use and assess appropriate engineering management research methods, skills, tools,
            technology and information technology effectively and critically in engineering
            research/development practice and show an understanding and a willingness to accept
            responsibility for the impact that research/development activities have on society and
            the environment.
        8. Evaluate systems, works, products or processes as a set of related systems and
            assess their social, legal, health, safety and environmental impacts and benefits where
            applicable in the chosen field of research.
        9. Employ various learning strategies and skills to master outcomes required preparing
            him/herself to engage in continuous learning to keep abreast of knowledge and skills
            required in the engineering management field
        10. Participate as a responsible citizen in the life of local, national and global communities
            by acting professionally and ethically in the chosen field of research.
        11. Demonstrate where applicable, cultural and aesthetic sensitivity across a range of
            social context in the execution of engineering management research and development
            activities.
