Katlego is graduate engineering geologist, who is demonstrating significant potential and proficiency towards becoming an exceptional asset to the geotechnical profession. Currently, she is the site geologist on the prestigious N3 Keyridge realignment project.

Amongst other things, she has proved to have a strong academic standing, having been awarded the NRF Full-time Honours/Final year BTech and NRF Scarce Skills Masters scholarships, during her studies at the University of Pretoria.

Throughout her postgraduate studies, she has been tutoring second year - Groundwater (GLY 265), Intro. to Geology for Civil & Mining Engineers (SGM 210)  and third year - Engineering Geology (GLY 363)  modules,  from the Geology Dept. Additionally, in 2016, she was appointed stand-in lecturer, presenting Intro. to Geology & Rock Mechanics for Civil Engineers (IGL 703). Furthermore, she has demonstrated an appreciation for research having presented at the 35th IGC hosted in South Africa, Cape Town, in the Young Engineering Geologist Session.

She is a focused, goal-driven individual who has further served in a number of noteworthy student organisations, including, Enactus “En – entrepreneurial, Act – action, us – student, academic and business leaders”. Including, heading up the Community Projects Portfolio, from her own faculty house: Natural and Agricultural Sciences Faculty House (NATHOUSE).

Being surrounded by a team of highly experienced and competent individuals, Katlego is responsible for the technical design of projects and providing assistance to the geological, geotechnical, tunnel and underground engineering team.   


Key Projects

Upgrade of N3 between Paradise Valley, Mariannhill and Hammarsdale, Durban, S.AFRICA (2017-18)

South African Road Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL)

Engineers Representative and Specialist Engineering Geologist– The project involved the widening and upgrade of the National Route 3 between Paradise Valley (Section 1, km 17.5) and Hammarsdale (Section 2, km 8.1). Geotechnical works comprised the investigation, and design of cut and fill retaining walls, soil and rock slopes, structure abutments, and pile foundations to several bridges.As the Engineers Representative on site, Katlego was responsible for overseeing and managing the drilling contracts, checking and reviewing logging, laboratory testing, specialist in-situ testing, geophysical testing as well as the production of the factual geotechnical report.

Van Reenen’s Pass Feasibility Study, KwaZulu Natal, S.AFRICA (2017)

South African Road Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL)

Engineering Geologist The project included the geotechnical investigation and evaluation of the feasibility for a potential alternative route for the N3 near Van Reenen.  The route includes very deep excavations, tunnels (drill-and-blast and cut-and-cover) and several large bridges and viaducts. Katlego assisted in the geotechnical investigation, including the supervision of drilling, undertaking the logging of core, and preparation of parts of the geotechnical report.
