When booking a holiday or deciding where to go out for dinner, you often go online and read reviews of people who have been there recently. So it stands to reason that when you are a prospective student deciding where to study, you will want to speak to students currently enrolled at the university, studying for their degree, and living the experience.
That’s where student ambassadors come in.
They serve as an on-campus advocate who can share their experience of studying through the institution and give an honest account of what that’s like, on-campus or online. Through an ambassador’s genuine help, prospective students can make confident and informed decisions about their school choice and future.
With this in mind, the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) puts a great deal of effort into carefully selecting its student ambassadors and is proud to announce its ambassadors for 2023.
A young, hardworking individual who dreams of becoming a chartered structural engineer, Nyahsa Mapudzi started his engineering journey in 2014 at Harare Polytechnic, studying for the National Certificate in civil engineering. Nine years later, he is on the verge of completing a BSc in civil/structural engineering.
He completed a Higher National Diploma in civil/structural engineering. Also, he gained professional recognition with the Engineering Council of South Africa as an experienced engineering technician and project management institution as a project management professional. Nyasha enrolled as an online EIT student for his first semester in July 2020 and decided in January 2022 to move on-campus to Perth to do his Bachelor of Science (Civil & Structural Engineering) because he wanted to experience all the action and meet the fantastic staff.
Annie Masara attained her National Certificate in electrical power engineering at Harare Polytechnic and did her training at Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company's subsidiary called Bulawayo Meter Test. She joined EIT in June 2022 to study Applied Electrical Engineering. She says joining EIT is a truly flexible and convenient way of studying such a challenging course whilst focusing on work and personal issues.
“I have always been passionate about electrical engineering because I was fascinated with technology from an early age. As a female in this male-dominated industry, I hope to inspire some women and girls to want to be in this industry, too,” said Annie.
Jules Bekoka Botomba is a qualified engineer with a Master’s degree in Industrial Automation from EIT, and is currently working towards his Doctorate in engineering.
“For many years, I have been fascinated with manufacturing plant automation, making it the center of all my interests. Coaching others is my core strength since my hands-on, higher qualification level sustains me to stand tall and take up any engineering challenges,” said Jules.
He highlights that automation with controls and artificial intelligence are becoming the backbone of any process design and implementation.
As one of the only institutes in the world specializing in engineering, EIT is dedicated to ensuring its students receive a world-class education and gain skills they can immediately implement in the workforce.
The institute delivers industry-focused professional certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas, undergraduate and graduate certificates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and a Doctor of Engineering to students from over 140 countries.
