Career Opportunities(Computer Systems & Light Current)The advances made in electronics over the past few decades have been phenomenal, and therefore any person holding this qualification must always be prepared to keep abreast of the latest developments. The study of electronics includes telecommunications, radio and television, radar, computers, electronic control systems and industrial electronic systems, especially computer-supported equipment. Qualified persons will also be involved in the development, building and maintenance of new equipment. Companies such as the SABC, Sentech, Eskom and Telkom, the mining industry, industrial plants such as Sasol and Columbus Steel, and research institutions are but a few possible employers. A person holding this qualification could also establish his/her own business.(Heavy Current)The generation, distribution and utilisation of electrical power are of the utmost importance in our country. A technologist who has qualified in this field will be concerned with the planning, production, installation and maintenance of a wide variety of heavy electrical equipment. He/she will occupy a responsible position in the community and enjoy a high level of job satisfaction. Employment is available at Eskom, PRASA, Transnet Freight Rail, Columbus Steel, suppliers of electrical equipment, mining companies, municipalities and research institutions. A person holding this qualification could also establish his/her own business.
