The Department of Computing Sciences received a wonderful visit from learners today.
Top achievers from Motherwell High, Cingani High, Coselelan High, Cowan High, Elundini Primary, David Vuku Primary, Swartkops Primary, and Diaz Primary.
A special thanks to TANKS Coding Project for making this opportunity possible for learners from all backgrounds. Exposure in life makes you who you are.
Coding 4 Youth | 16,000 pupil reached in two months How do you learn to code without a computer? Well, the Nelson Mandela University has got it figured out. It's upskilling young people using unplugged coding ...

We were privileged to visit Cengani High School in Motherwell. At the beginning of our presentation, 2 male learners were interested in the Computing Sciences field and only 8 learners knew about it (4 girls and 4 guys). At the end of the presentation, 12 learners said they would like to join Computing Sciences (6 girls and 6 guys). Such an amazing experience from TANKS Coding Project.
TANKS Coding Project provided the opportunity for learners at Loyiso SS School in Zwide to learn about study and career opportunities in Computing Sciences. Learners were excited to hear they can work anywhere in the world with Computing Sciences.
Event postponed to next term. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Nelson Mandela University Computing Sciences and School of IT open evening on the 23rd of March. Register now by sending an email to [email protected] to get the meeting link.

Grade 12 learners from Motherwell High School were excited to learn about career opportunities in the field of Computing Sciences. As an extension of the TANKS Coding Project, we are excited to give students exposure to the field.
Fantastic to see kids so keen to learn! TY Prof Jean Greyling - "School pupils gathered around a game of RANGERS coding, after their bus broke down outside Beaufort West. NMU Computing Sciences, Leva Foundation and AWS in Communities are partnering to reach at least 15,000 learners with coding before the end of March, across the country and the continent..."❤️🇿🇦
Great presentation by Ntembeko Jafta at Cowan High in New Brighton. Introducing Grade 12 learners to studies in Computing Sciences as an extension of the TANKS Coding Project.
Great to see graduate Nomsa Tsotetsi giving back!

MEET The 'Farm Boy' Who Mentors New Matriculants Near East London A couple of weeks ago, Professor Jean Greyling from the computing department at Nelson Mandela University bumped into a former student. His name is Onke Dume and he was in Prof Greyling’s class around 2013. Onke grew up on a farm, where his mother tragically died when he was young, but even though...

But don’t just take our word for it. This is what Yonela Xandekana, NMU alumni, and one of the successful entrepreneurs from last year's Bootcamp had to say:
Its is always good to get feedback - especially if it is from a project that happened many years ago! The department produced the Alumni video “I wrote that Code”.

Well done to Nathan, Themba, and Moreblessing for presenting at SATNAC in Drakensberg
In 2017 Honours student Byron Batteson developed the TANKS coding app, aimed at introducing learners to coding without the use of computers. Within the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and given the fact that 16000 schools in South Africa do not have functional computer labs, this is addressing a real challenge. Since 2017 two more coding apps, BOATS and RANGERS, have been developed as well as various other complementary resources combined into school coding kits. Over a 1000 teachers were trained in using these resources within the umbrella of Unplugged Coding (coding without computers). Over 25000 learners were reached in direct workshops, while many 1000’s more have been impacted in 100’s of schools who received TANKS or BOATS coding kits.
Honours student Marco Venter’s project on the front page this morning!
“Once he had finished his project, Venter and his supervisor, Prof Janet Wesson, had shown it to IDR&D (based in New York) and their response had been positive.
‘They said it surpassed industry standards, that it was highly novel and that it had never been seen before in the biometric sector, which uses human characteristics to formulate management controls,’ Venter said.”
Eight staff members and students from our department joined others from UCT and Oldenburg (Germany) in tackling ICT for Sustainability issues, as part of the two-week HEdIS Summer School funded by DAAD. The Summer School activities included writing for publication on these topics and carrying out curriculum development of three modules. These can soon form part of the three universities’ programmes to teach sustainability concepts in Computing Sciences, Business Informatics and Business Sciences at different levels.
