In 2010, Engenius embarked on a campaign to grow and transform the engineering profession by educating learners about the engineering profession and enthusing them to make engineering a career of choice.
In a response to address the insufficient numbers of engineering professionals available to deal with the sustained demands of the country, the Engineering Council of South Africa, recognised engineering voluntary associations and stakeholders (involved in advancing the engineering profession) committed themselves to an initiative called Engenius.
National collaboration and coordination amongst organisation advancing the engineering profession would contribute to the maximisation of effort and resources whilst eliminating duplication.
The Engenius campaign also aims to provide learners with an understanding of the role of the engineering profession in their lives with the driving messages: “Engineering professionals make it happen!” and “Join the team that shapes the future.”
