Since graduating with a BSc honors in civil engineering and a masters in educational technology from the University of Cape Town, Athenkosi Nzala has gained years of experience in leadership and development from working with companies like the Mandela Rhodes Foundation, Investec, McKinsey and Company, Young African Leaders Initiative and Pearson South Africa. Nzala has worked with the Engineers Without Borders on the Engineering for People Design Challenge aimed at delivering a global engineering curriculum that helps graduates make positive social and environmental engineering decisions.
Beyond engineering, Nzala aims to revolutionise the way people learn, train, collaborate and assess online with Limitless Online Learning Solutions, the e-learning company he founded. “I see myself adding value to the youth not only through entrepreneurship, but through creating platforms for them to receive quality education so they can be empowered to create opportunities for others and themselves.”
Through my scientific research, I endeavor to nurture novel, innovative and translatable research that is locally relevant and globally competitive.
