The engineering industry is an incredibly important part of the South African economy. Without this sector, much of what exists in our country today would not be achievable. Read all about the engineering industry and its importance in South Africa below:
The importance of engineering
The engineering industry is an incredibly important part of society. The reason for this is that engineering is not merely one industry, but it is the basis of many different industries. The techniques and skills employed by this industry are needed to identify and solve problems in various other industries including transport, medicine, entertainment, construction and so much more. The engineering industry has a direct effect on many of the products that we have become so accustomed to using, with one major societal component being technology. Technology is surrounded by every moment of every day and without the engineering industry, it would cease to exist. The development of the South African economy relies heavily on this industry.
The South African engineering status
Unfortunately, the South African engineering industry is not what it could be. This is due to the fact that there are very few individuals in the country with the skills to perform the appropriate engineering techniques. That being said, the engineers that we do have in South Africa boast excellent workmanship and provide high-quality products that meet the stringent standards of the industry.
