We are proud to announce our 2019 Student Ambassador is Tatenda Nherera. He is a member of EIT’s alumni community and will now be representing our current and prospective students.

Tatenda recently graduated from EIT’s 52684WA – Advanced Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities. He said EIT’s online delivery mode allowed him to continue working full-time, while improving his instrumentation knowledge and technical writing skills. This newfound expertise helped him in his work with the Eastern Cape Department of Health and Department of Public Works; his main responsibilities include servicing, maintenance and repair of their key and sophisticated steam boilers, laundry and kitchen machines for many Health Facility and Correctional Service Centres in the South African province.

Tatenda began studying engineering in 2008, when he enrolled in the Gweru Polytechnic College in Zimbabwe as an electrical power student. He then began studying with EIT in 2015 — now he’s completing his Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation Engineering) with us.

“I will remain employed and still study part time as I did on my previous course. The studies are giving me more meaningful skills, and contributing to the African society, where engineering skills like mine are very scarce,” he said.
