Brief Information About The Association of South African Women in Science and Engineering (SAWISE)
SAWISE is the shot form for the Association of South African Women in Science and Engineering, it is a dynamic association for all those who support the idea of strengthening women to pursue science fields and engineering in South Africa.
South Africa and the entire continent of Africa, has a critical shortage of trained technological people. Research shows that In 1980 North America had 2679 scientists and engineers who got involved in research and development per million population with the following outcomes; Latin America 251, and Africa 49.
