“In an African context, disruptive technology can be seen as an opportunity to leapfrog into the best and most advanced technologies, but this is only possible with access to the right training and equipment,” she added.

“Convergence of man and machine intelligence will enable a new era of speed, flexibility, efficiency and connectivity in the 21st century. The conversation about man vs machine is not an either-or scenario.  Ongoing education and training have a positive effect on both business and society”. 

Electrical engineering equipment will be supplied to: Northlink College, Boland College, Stellenbosch University, Port Elizabeth College, Nelson Mandela University, North West University, University of Pretoria, Sol-Tech University, and Mangosuthu University of Technology.
