Extended Curriculum Programme

The Engineering Extended Curriculum Programme (ECP) is an extended curriculum, where the first year subjects are spread over two years, with additional support. Students accepted in the Extended Curriculum Programme will take an additional year to complete their diplomas, as compared to main-stream students.

Note: This provision registers students who meet the minimum requirements to be accepted in one of the engineering qualifications, but may have problems completing the qualification in the standard time. 

The ECP programme is offered for Building, Chemical, Clothing Management, Maritime Studies, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.


Students likely to benefit from this provision:

  • those with a grade 12 qualification (Mathematics, Science and English) who meet the minimum entry requirements for Engineering, but are under-prepared.

Students may be placed on the Extended Curriculum Programme if the department feels that they would struggle to complete the mainstream programme in the normal time. Please note that applicants cannot apply for ECP.

To apply please contact the department.
