Students must complete two sessions of vacation training during their studies.One session must be at least 4 uninterrupted weeks long and the other 3 uninterrupted weeks.Civil Engineering students are generally uncertain about the expectations of requirements for vacation training, and even who to contact in the Department if questions arise. This is particularly applicable to 2nd, and to a lesser extent, to 3rd year students for whom the Department and its personnel are fairly unknown. The convenor for vacation training in the Department is Mr Carlo Loubser. He is responsible for all questions regarding vacation training, as well as the coordination thereof.

The following are general problems and questions that students have with regard to vacation training:
