A father’s passion for Civil Engineering rubbed off on his son who is now excelling in the discipline at UKZN.

Mr Sanav Singh, a second-year Civil Engineering student who says he followed in his father’s footsteps when choosing a degree, has now been awarded a Malegapuru W Makgoba Scholarship presented to the five-top-ranked undergraduates proceeding from first year to second year in each of the four Colleges.

Success seems to come naturally to this hard worker who was one of the top KZN matriculants in 2014, winning him the Pius Langa Scholarship.

Singh’s father, a Civil Engineer, serves as his role model.  ‘I enjoy mathematics and science and am passionate about the practical side of life,’ said Singh. ‘My passion continues to grow, especially in areas covered by the Civil Engineering degree.  It was an easy choice to begin this career path.’

Singh, who hopes one day to take over his father’s business, enjoys dancing and soccer and describes himself as a dedicated and committed individual who aims to give his best in all aspects of his life.
