The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality in its commitment to address the skills shortage in the South African economy, is offering bursaries to students who wish to study towards an Engineering qualification at a tertiary institution.
The Municipality’s Bursary Programme aims to provide access to high-quality and relevant education and training, skills development opportunities, including workplace learning and experience, to prospective learners who wish to study and gain technical skills.
Bursaries for study are available in the following engineering disciplines:
B. Sc./B. Eng. Mechanical
B. Sc. Electrical Engineering

Must have Matric exemption, with Mathematics and Science, minimum B average (HG).

The bursary will cover tuition, residence and meal fees.
The successful candidate will be required to enter into a binding contract with the Council after graduation for a period equal to the tenure of the bursary.
Where bursars are required to undertake experiential training, as prescribed by the course, with the Municipality, an allowance will be paid to the bursar during this period.
