Staff within Engineering Sector in the private and public sector experiences a shortage of functionaries with management skills to address problems relating decision making and operational practices for infrastructure system management. Due to political realities such as staff profile transformation and redress, both the private and public sectors require trained and capacitated staff to address the challenge of infrastructure system management. It includes both formally employed qualified and non-qualified employees. The lack of formal knowledge of engineering principles underlying infrastructure systems management is one of the main reasons for infrastructure failure and dysfunctionality (inclusive of bulk- and reticulation services). In the process limited knowledge related to obligations in terms of the applicable policy and legislative framework pertaining to infrastructure is evident. This short course will focus on capacity building of students in the basic infrastructure, technological and financial management principles in managing infrastructure systems.
