Online Course in Spatial Statistics

To analyse spatially allows the statistician to incorporate the spatial correlation present in many datasets, without which model interpretation may be incorrect.
 
There is a wealth of knowledge on spatial statistics within South Africa, the research field of spatial statistics is still relatively young and much expert guidance is required to build the field in terms of research as well as training.
 
Spatial statistics has very important applications in the South African context.
 

Basic Aviation Occurrence Investigation (BAOIC)

The UP Enterprises Initial Aviation Occurrence Investigation Course (IOIC) is a compacted but detailed Outcomes-Based (OBE) training course at aim to serve the Aviation Community in order to augment one of their principal objectives: Aviation Safety. Moreover, it will enhance the Aviation Operator’s compliance to the obligatory Safety Management System as required by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) Regulations.

Aerial surveying (UAV) for 3-D surface modelling and detailed mapping

The aim of this course is to provide field-based demonstrations of Aerial Surveying using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to acquire ultra-high resolution imagery of the study area, which will later (in the lab) be used to generate various geographic information products such as orthophoto, point clouds, digital elevation models (DEMs), digital surface models (DSMs) and detailed mapping from high spatial-resolution orthomosaic image. In particular, the detailed mapping of various land surface entities can be mapped accurately on the produced high resolution image.

Introduction to Multidisciplinary Concepts in Railway Engineering

The short course in the Introduction to Multidisciplinary Concepts in Railway Engineering is ideal for a professional from any engineering discipline who already has reasonable (or intention to gain) experience in the railway operations environment. During this course, you will not only be introduced to the multidisciplinary aspects and concepts of railway engineering, but you will also be equipped with unparalleled knowledge of the basic principles of and general background to the field with a specific focus on how railway transport systems operate.

Introduction to Mining

The Introduction to Mining short course is specifically designed to provide non-mining personnel who play a support function to the mining core and/or suppliers to the mining industry, with fundamental knowledge and insight into mining operations. Aimed at professional people who do not necessarily have a mining engineering degree or diploma, you can acquire a better understanding of the mining process through this course if you are already working on a mine, work for a mine supplier or own shares in mines.

Business Writing for Engineers

The writing and presenting of technical proposals which are audience-focused and purpose driven remain integral to effective project management. It requires a clear understanding of detail orientation and concise technical writing in order to justify resulting expenditure. The transfer of the intended message for achieving a favourable decision is facilitated by effective language skills.
