EBIT supports the University’s transformation mandate to promote women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The Faculty works with industry partners to offer sponsorships toward the Faculty’s EBIT Week for high school learners, as well as underprivileged learners from rural areas who wish to study programs offered by our Faculty. This 4-day immersion program which the faculty has been offering for the past 20 years gives these high school learners the opportunity to experience university life and what engineering, Information Technology, and the Built Environment is about. A mentorship program has developed as a result of EBIT Week. Senior students identify potentially academically strong candidates who also reside in close proximity to them to guide them to achieve good results in their schoolwork to qualify to study progarmmes offered in STEM. This hopefully takes them out of the poverty levels they experience as many of them are first-time university entrants in their families. This has been a successful program for us as almost 80% of our students that enroll as first-time engineering students have been through our Faculty’s EBIT Week program.
