INDUSTRY PARTNERS

The Eurydice consortium has identified several industry partners, to assist with bridging the gap between the theory that students learn in lecture halls and the practical environment they find at the workplace.

EURYDICE PROJECT

The overarching aim of the EURYDICE Project is to increase students’ employability in the field of renewable energies, on the basis of closer collaboration between universities and industry.

Industry often expresses concern that graduates lack practical/applied experience, and that it therefore takes a long time to get young starters to perform as required. This lack of practical experience is found at all levels of the education system in South Africa, namely vocational training; and diploma, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree studies.

Hence, in principal, this problem exists in all areas of (higher) Engineering education. The EURYDICE Project focuses on the field of renewable energies, for several reasons.

The energy generation landscape in South Africa is undergoing a fundamental transition, as the vision of South Africa’s energy strategy is to contribute to affordable energy for all, and to minimise the negative effects of energy supply and usage on human health and the environment.
