Job Shadow Day
Makhaotse, Narasimulu & Associates proudly hosts an annual “CESA Job Shadow Day” at their various offices. A diverse group of students representing various schools are invited to experience the different disciplines of Civil Engineering. Students engage in informative presentations, discussions, activities and a site visit.
The day begins with a welcome breakfast and an introduction to Civil Engineering. The presenter touches on the ways a Civil Engineer improves the everyday lives of people, giving the students insight into the daily lives of an engineer, the type of work and projects they would be involved in, as well as the many avenues they could pursue within the civil engineering field. The students then participate in learning activities presented by each discipline of engineering present at our MNA offices, namely, Roads, Structures and Water and Sanitation.
All activities start off with background knowledge within the various disciplines mentioned above followed by a simplistic representation of engineering principles. Students are then taken on a site visit where they are given a tour of the construction operations. Various tiers of management were allowed to interact with the students in the day varying from directorship to the designers of the various projects and not forgetting the people whom translate designs to a finished product.
Job Shadow Day – 2017
“Makhaotse, Narasimulu & Associates proudly hosted our annual “CESA Job Shadow Day” at our Westville, Durban offices in July 2017.
The initiative was created by the Consulting Engineers of South Africa (CESA) and is aimed at exposing and enticing School Learners into the Engineering Field, but more so to Civil Engineering. The day consisted of brief presentations and activities in the various disciplines of our company, namely Roads, Water & Structures.
We ended the day with a visit to a King Edward Hospital construction site. Learners were shown how engineers turn drawings into life size buildings and structures. A good productive day was had by both staff and learners, we look forward to hosting a bigger and more exciting Job Shadow Day 2018!”

The initiative was created by the Consulting Engineers of South Africa (CESA) and is aimed at exposing and enticing School Learners to the Engineering Field, but more so to Civil Engineering. The day consisted of presentations and activities in the various disciplines of our company, namely Roads, Water & Structures.
We then topped the day off with a visit to a nearby construction site to show off how awesome being an engineer is. This event has been an amazing experience to both the staff and learners, we look forward to hosting many more in the years to come.”
