The University of Stellenbosch and the Faculty of Engineering strive to address the needs of the community through service and development programmes within the Faculty. We use our own students,personnel and resources as well as the expertise of co-workers both within and outside the University.
The main research objective of the personnel of the Faculty is to provide a better life for South Africa's people. Thus the Faculty strives to do research in areas such as roads, dams, water purification, effluent treatment, renewable energy, etc.
The Faculty does provide the organizational framework, as well as infrastructure, for participation in community services and development on the campus as well as country wide. The concept of the University of Stellenbosch's Engineering Faculty's community interaction focuses on the development of our young people (school children).
