All qualified candidates are required to have a minimum of a Level 6 in an engineering or science discipline. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) will be applicable for candidates entering from the workplace or applying for admission from other institutes.

What is RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is when formal recognition is given for what you already know prior to starting on a programme or module. With recognition of prior learning the focus is on learning and not on experience as such. You can apply for RPL in any MTU accredited programme or module. Programmes which are accredited by professional bodies or any external awarding bodies may have their own procedures for RPL which you should refer to.
