Rolling Stock Technology

The Rolling Stock Technology module covers everything there is to know about locomotives, wagons and coaches. The principles of Rolling Stock Design (mechanical and electrical) are presented as fundamental knowledge for understanding the functioning of the various systems and sub-systems of a railway vehicle. Emphasis is placed on the various interfaces between rolling stock components and the module concludes with the essential aspects of condition monitoring, inspection, maintenance and safety.

Modelling and Simulation of Wastewater Treatment Processes

The short course in Modelling and Simulation of Wastewater Treatment Processes provides you with a framework for demonstrating and fine-tuning the processes that are commonly used in wastewater treatment plants. During the course, basic kinetic concepts for the removal of water pollutants will be presented together with the application of kinetic principles in several reactor designs.

Railway Safety Investigation Course

The Railway Safety Investigation short course will provide you with the required skills in initiating, conducting and reporting on an investigation into railway occurrences. With a view to identify safety deficiencies and propose remedial action to prevent future occurrences, you will be exposed to a systematic approach in the investigation of train safety incidents, as well as the vehicle, infrastructure and operational aspects needed for the safe and orderly operation of any railway system.

Project Quality, Risk and Time Management

The Project Quality, Risk and Time Management short course presents you with a unique training experience in applying a further three of the ten Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) areas – namely, Quality management, Risk Management and Time Management – directly to the construction and built environments. The course specifically aims to provide you with extensive knowledge of and the requisite skills in project control and time management, project reporting, project construction and proper close-out to ensure quality standards and minimised risks are met.

Spatial Planning, Land Use Management and Urban Development Dynamics

The short course in Spatial Planning, Land Use Management and Urban Development Dynamics is specifically designed to enhance your skills and knowledge as real estate practitioner, property valuer, commercial property broker, estate agent, property developer or property financier in the wake of recent changes in development planning and infrastructure delivery bylaws. The course is ideal if you are involved in real estate or property development and often have to deal with complex processes or sometimes high-risk investment decisions on property deals.

Seed Science

The short course in Seed Science will provide you with a good working knowledge of seed physiology and technology (including seed vigour, dormancy, storage and enhancement) and is specifically aimed at seed analysts, scientists and employees of seed production companies.

Environmental Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement (Blended)

The Environmental Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement is a 6-week mixed-mode (i.e. Internet supported as well as face-to-face) course designed to prepare you with knowledge and insights to align company policies and objectives to current environmental legislation to ultimately minimise liabilities and interact with audit, inspection and enforcement processes.
 
Environmental legislation seeks to protect our natural resources and, during this course, you will acquire the know-how to optimally interact with laws and regulations to ensure sustainability.

Water Quality Management and Effluent Treatment

The course will help us address the following challenges facing the water sector of South Africa:
  • Managing the emergence of the Water Availability crisis in Southern Africa
  • Evaluation of Water Fitness for Use
  • Management and design for resilience
  • Litigation against impacts of climate change
  • Paradigm shift from Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recover
  • Integration of ecological system during wastewater and effluent treatment
  • Countering the increasing incident of emerging pollutants and EDCs
