BU­L­AWAYO, Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 29, 1966 — Bu­l­awayo City Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer, re­port­ing on the Coun­cil’s pupil en­gi­neer scheme has said that the short­age now, and pos­si­bly more se­ri­ous later, of tech­ni­cally trained engi­neers could place the coun­try in con­sid­er­able dif­fi­culty.

The re­port said that the In­sti­tute of Elec­tri­cal Engi­neers in Lon­don did not ac­cept the Bu­l­awayo Tech­ni­cal Col­lege as a suit­able in­sti­tu­tion for Part III of the in­sti­tute’s ex­am­i­na­tion.

But the In­sti­tute of Me­chan­i­cal Engi­neers, Lon­don, did ac­cept Bu­l­awayo Tech­ni­cal Col­lege for train­ing pupils.

In the Coun­cil’s scheme of five pupil engi­neers – two me­chan­i­cal and three elec­tri­cal – in 1963, only one in each cat­e­gory re­mained. The pupil elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer planned to re­sign in 1967.

The con­di­tions of ser­vice did not bind the pupils to serve the coun­cil af­ter ob­tain­ing grad­u­ate mem­ber­ship of the var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions.
