Planning to initiate the said events and other projects (not yet listed) has already begun, be ready to hear from us. We hope that the events that are to come will be met with the same excitement and keenness. 


AND as our lovely chairperson Nozuko Nompuku suggested, you’re more than welcome to share your project ideas with us, and perhaps together we can work on fulfilling a need that has been weighing on your heart. 

We hope that you are ready to use this year to make an impact in Pretorian communities and for your own growth and personal development. Join us for one, or all of the events and projects. Let them transform you, stretch you and ignite a new passion for engineering and positively impacting the community you live in.
