Name of Degree: Master of Engineering in Energy

Title of dissertation: Controller optimisation of an evacuated tube solar water heating system

The aim of my research is to design a solar water heating system to substitute the original electric heating element system at the Belhar community centre here in Cape Town, and thereby reduce the expense of power utilisation.

I come from Douala, Cameroon, and started my CPUT journey in 2015. I was doing a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering at the time. And I hope to graduate from this degree in 2022.

A standout experience for me at CPUT has been doing a training in sailing. It was such an amazing experience.

My only suggestion for CPUT to improve is to give more financial support to postgraduate students.
