Thompho, a BSc Mechanical Engineering graduate from Wits, is pursuing a master's degree in partnership with Airbus Germany, researching about the introduction of a portable low-pressure cold spray system for repairing Aluminium Alloy 2024-T3 structures. His passion for impactful engineering emerged during an internship at Eskom, Africa's largest electricity supplier. In his final-year project, he designed an electricity system for rural wastewater purification that solves power outage-related water treatment challenges in his community without harming natural river habitats, with potential for global application. As a junior engineer, Thompho is committed to spearheading innovative and sustainable solutions that enhance societal well-being.
