Firstly thank you for your time

Firstly thank you for your time, I am currently at a crossroad and have untill Friday (10/05/13) to decide which direction to go. I have my N4, subjects are industrial electronics, maths, electrotechnics and refrigeration. My problem is that the current Tech does not offer refrigeration N5 and I want to do fluid mechanics as well or in the place of industrial electronics. Where can I study Refrigeration N5? Or should I apply at UNISA for a mechanical degree? My direction will be refrigeration engineering. Any suggestions.

Thank you in advance

We apologise for only answering now, due to a technical problem.

If you have N4, the next step is a Diploma which is offered at various Universities of Technology and some combined Universities.

You can go here:

Go to Universities of Technology and these Comprehensive Univerisites and check each one. University of Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, University of Venda, University of Zululand, Walter Sisulu University.

Then we suggest you check this link

Where you will find some private educational institutions which also offer Refrigeration courses. Those are accredited by the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services SETA (MERSETA) and this is their website:

We suggest you enquire from them who is offering this particular speciality in your vicinity.

Good luck!
