Jewellery design 

Students are trained in designing, manufacturing and marketing of jewellery - the basic principles for a successful career in the jewellery business. On completion of the course, graduates will have no difficulty in coping with the variety of manufacturing and designing functions, especially if they have obtained the B.Tech Degree after four years of training. A small jeweller's workshop has only a few staff members - they work closely together as a team. This needs all-round people with good social relationships with others, able to co-operate and work with total honesty in dealing with precious materials. These jewellers design individual pieces of jewellery, manufacture the pieces and sell them to their customers. They are also responsible for the management of their business.

Jewellery factories need people specialised in different fields - designing, manufacturing, model making, casting, setting, or marketing of the products. Some small jewellery shops sell jewellery on a retail basis; they employ people for selling and repairing jewellery, also for general managerial duties.

Application process: Prospective students are required to present a portfolio of specified art work and successfully complete a programme selection test and personal inter view convened and assessed by a programme panel.
Fees and costings: The fee rules apply to all students registered with the Durban University of Technology. More specific information on fees
