Why choose BBD’s Bursary & Beyond Programme

The BBD Bursary & Beyond Programme strives to support and grow talented students working towards their degree in an engineering or software related discipline such as, but not limited to, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, BSc, BCom informatics or game design.

The Programme is designed around creating opportunities for our bursars to have access to the financial means necessary to compete their studies alongside hands-on exposure to real-world software development, and full access to our Research and Development team (ATC).

Our ultimate goal is to help you meet inspiring, like-minded individuals, build your network, share knowledge and ease your transition from student to working professional.

At the end of your studies, BBD Bursars join our exciting Grad Programme where you’ll dive into your career, working on real project teams and quickly upskill within BBD’s unique company culture.
