Ten years of emerging enterprise and graduate development

2nd Quarter 2019 News & events

Bosch Ulwazi marks its tenth anniversary this year, with a track record in the advancement of engineering skills across South Africa. The company was established in 2009 as a subsidiary of Bosch Holdings in order to mentor engineers and project managers to achieve professional registration with regulatory bodies. Today, Bosch Ulwazi provides a range of technical skill solutions to public and corporate organisations that employ graduate engineers, technologists and project managers who are candidates for professional registration. Professional registration is a key milestone that prepares young graduates for leadership, or even branching out into their own enterprise.

“A critical part of Bosch Ulwazi’s operations is to identify, mentor and develop black-owned businesses,” explains Bosch Ulwazi’s managing director, Balan Govender. “In partnership with leading organisations, including state-owned enterprises, we play a key role in the development of small, medium and micro-sized enterprises. Our highly skilled team provides guidance on project and operations management, skills development and the planning and implementation of expansion strategies, in compliance with corporate governance.”

To date, Bosch Ulwazi has developed 78 emerging enterprises in South Africa, which are now profitable and sustainable. Another key focus is graduate development. The company’s Engineer-in-Training (EIT) and project management program provides opportunities for graduate engineers and project managers to enhance their practical engineering and project management competencies, to meet the requirements of ECSA and SACPCMP for professional registration. To date, 15 graduates have successfully registered as professional technicians, technologists and engineers.
