Montwood Bridging Programme – A customised curriculum focused on the required fundamental engineering skills and knowledge, is developed by university Professors and practicing Engineers who are registered with ECSA (Engineering Council of South Africa). At the same time, the programme essentially serves to bridge the gap for learners with no Maths and/or Physics at Matric or poor passes in Maths and/or Physics at Matric. Comprehensive lectures are supported by industry-related practical tasks, from component level.     

Learners in possession of:

  1. Matric certificate or equivalent with 50% in English but no Maths and/or Physics must pass all 5 subjects in the bridging programme with a minimum of 50%, over 1 year to be eligible to register on the N4 programme thereafter
  2. Matric certificate or equivalent with 50% in English but have passed Maths and/or Physics with less than 50%, must pass all 5 subjects in the bridging programme with a minimum of 50%, over a trimester (3 months) to be eligible to register on the N4 programme thereafter
  3. NCV 4 certificate in Electrical Engineering or equivalent with 50% in English and have passed  Maths, Engineering Science/Physics and another electrical engineering subject with less than 50%,  must pass all 5 subjects in the bridging programme with a minimum of 50%, over a trimester (3 months) to be eligible to register on the N4 programme thereafter

 

NB. Although the national pass mark is 40% in the college sector, students wishing to articulate or progress into the university sector, will require a minimum pass mark of 50% in all subjects, for credit or exemption purposes.

This bridging level is presented by means of a weekly knowledge-sharing exercise in the classroom integrated by application of this knowledge in a fully equipped laboratory on all basic components & IC’s of electrical & electronic engineering, individually then integrated into circuits to conduct tests to compare calculated results to measured results.

The programme is audited and presented under the mentorship of individuals amongst who are industrial practitioners and university academics registered with ECSA (Engineering Council of South Africa).
