Guy wrote in his application: I chose to further my education by participating in Master’s studies as I believe I have much to learn from and contribute to the field of hydraulics and dam engineering. I enjoy problem solving and look forward to indulging in research within my field of choice and contributing to the ever increasing knowledge bank that exists within South Africa. Having worked under dam specialists at MBB Consulting Engineers I believe I have gained an appreciation for dam engineering. With a special interest in water supply, management and methods to efficiently store water I am excited about the opportunity to make use of the facilities available at Stellenbosch University for me to pursue this passion under a supervisor, Prof Gerrit Basson, with vast experience and knowledge.
