    Wiki night is about networking, getting to hear what corporates have to say and meeting other EWB-SA student members.

    The discussion for the night was about “what are people most passionate about or most anxious about as engineers in SA?” We were challenged in the invites to read the “Engineering News” in South Africa to get conversations going and be well informed on the night. During Wiki night # 3  EWB-SA students from different universities met together with highly regarded guests from the industry. It was an informal opportunity for people to chat, think, plan, envision and inspire each other. The conversations between students and professionals around relevant topics got everyone thinking! Till next time …

    1.  As an engineering student, there is a lot we can give to our communities and to the society as a whole. This could be in the form of volunteering. By volunteering, we can bridge the gap between the communities, high school learners and the university by sharing our knowledge. This is where EWB-SA and the university students come in, giving back to our communities.
    2. As university students, there is still a lot to learn before going to the workplace, this is where the senior engineers and the professionals within academia come in handy. As students, we can learn a lot and equip ourselves with all the knowledge and skills we need for the workplace apart from what we learn in the lecture rooms. Engaging with the senior engineers will give us an opportunity to engage in and solve some of the real life problems, thereby linking what we learn in class with real problems.

     

    EWB-SA promises to be exciting, and this is what I need as a student, to be involved in activities that will see us giving back and building our communities and the country as a whole. Students graduate every year, however, our beloved country still needs committed, hardworking and determined engineers who have the passion, drive and enthusiastic about taking this ‘special’ discipline to another level. Chatting to the EWB-SA management during the Wiki night meeting gave me an understanding of what EWB-SA is all about. EWB-SA is a very good platform for students to give back to the community, and also engage, interact and be mentored by professionals within the industry. This is exactly what I need, I am fully committed to this initiative and I will engage in all the EWB-SA activities.
