PROTEC Tongaat is extremely proud of our 29 graduates who completed their qualifications at the end of 2022, despite the disruptions of the Covid pandemic, the 2021 July riots and the 2022 April floods, and we’re prouder still, that all of them are in STEM-related fields.
The mid-year report concludes: “We extend sincere thanks to all our partners and stakeholders whose support, dedication and hard work ensure the continued growth and success of PROTEC Tongaat. It is thanks to you that PROTEC students have the opportunity to reach for their dreams and lead successful, meaningful and productive adult lives.”

Njabulo Mazibuko, first year Electrical Engineering student at UKZN, wrote to Marion Takis and Anna Mkhize:
“I want to express my deepest gratitude for allowing me to be a part of the incredible team that went for work exposure to FSS and Hulett. It was an invaluable experience that I will cherish throughout my career as an electrical engineering student.
During my time with the team, I gained a wealth of knowledge that has significantly impacted my understanding of the field. I had the opportunity to observe and engage in various projects, learning about practical applications of electrical engineering principles. From troubleshooting complex systems to analysing circuit designs, every task provided me with hands-on experience that complemented my academic studies.
I look forward to applying these skills in my future work and making a positive impact in the field of electrical engineering.”For more information
