Welcome to Stellenbosch University

What We do

​The PRASA Chair was established early in 2011 in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Stellenbosch University.

It initiates and executes research into aspects of maintenance management and applicable engineering solutions best suited to the needs of PRASA/Metrorail. By making use of research specialists and faculty laboratories,  it conducts investigations to determine the best solutions to satisfy the needs of all branches of PRASA/Metrorail.  

The Chair also initiated and established a training program for managers, scientists and engineers. The program of short courses enables suitable PRASA candidates to obtain training covering various aspects of their work. Workshops and seminars on relevant issues are also conducted. The PRASA Chair furthermore administers the bursaries funded by PRASA, thereby fostering the need for advanced training of future PRASA engineers.
