30 April 2010 - Global engineering group Aurecon was recently presented with an Experiential Learning Merit Award by the South African Society of Corporate Education (SASCE) and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).
The award recognised the group’s consistently high engineering standards and its proactive participation in cooperative education.
Aurecon provides engineering, management and specialist technical services for government and private sector clients globally. Formed through the merger of three leading engineering consultancies, Africon, Connell Wagner and Ninham Shand, Aurecon’s aim of fostering human achievement is evident in both the projects the group undertakes and its commitment to supporting the development of young engineering talent.
The group has played a supportive role in the careers of many TUT students during the experiential learning period over the past year, including inviting them to assist on site and engage in technical engineering tasks at various Aurecon offices in Tshwane. This experience is invaluable in shaping the engineers’ future. Aurecon’s willingness to mentor, support and guide TUT learners contributes to an enriched learning experience and one that is far more valuable than theory alone.
Aurecon has shown itself to be a group which dedicates time, resources and care to ensure the implementation of quality technical knowledge.
