Ocean robotics and engineering internship roadshow visits Cape Peninsula University of Technology

Sea Technology Services's and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’s (CSIR’s) ocean engineering internship and robotic roadshow rounds off their recruitment drive at the Zonnebloem campus of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

The recruitment drive was in support of the joint commitment by the CSIR and Sea Technology Services to grow the pool of South African Oceanographic Engineers in the Electrical, Mechatronics and Mechanical arenas, after the successful sponsoring of four Electrical Engineering students in obtaining their National Diplomas, plus two to complete their B-Tech. 

The growth of Sea Technology Services as an oceanographic engineering and equipment support company, and the expansion of CSIR’s South African Marine Engineering and Robotic Centre (SAMERC), provides the ideal opportunity to invest in the dynamic energy and innovation of the young engineering staff.

With the ever-expanding need in Southern Africa for well-trained and compentent sea-going technical staff in support of a growing and active awareness of the crucial role fulfilled by ocean robots in monitoring climate change and ensuring compliance with environmental management directives, Sea Technology Services is commited to developing our country’s human capital in the form of efficient and professional Oceanographic Engineers.
