Greetings. While in search of purveyors of distance BSEE'ish course work/degrees, I came across Technikon SA's (http://www.tsa.ac.za/) blurb in The Book (15th edition). Questions: 1) Has Dr. Bear deceived me? The good doctor has described TSA as offering engineering degrees (among others), but the EE related offerings *seem* more Technology related. Who's right: my suspicions or our doctor? 2) Technikon SA offers the following electronics degrees (degrees may be the wrong term over there, but I'm over here so I'll use it <g>): National Diploma, B Tech, M Tech, D Tech: Engineering: Electrical/Electronic Could anyone explain these degrees in a way that I, as an American, would understand? <g> Also, and importantly, which -- if any -- would include BSEE comparable engineering class work? That is, which -- if any -- would teach calculus based electronics courses, etc. (I do not care at all if any of the previous offering lack the excelsior [general education requirements, etc.] that a traditional, residential American BSEE would offer.) 3) Would anyone care expound on the history, status, and prospects of Technikon SA? Am I correct in assuming that it is roughly equivalent to an American RA college (although I'll know more after someone answers question #1 <g>)? Thanks in advance! Richard Kanarek All in all, I find doing the school work far easier and more enjoyable than selecting the school itself.
