This model is a true reflection of class, elegance and exclusivity. Today known as Business Suites (SA) it is our goal is to build serviced office space in 5* centres, referred to as the Hotel of Offices. With 1000 new offices planned for 2017/2018 we aim to fill the demand and set the standard for the best office facilities in the world. <p></p> Business Suites Features <p></p> Perfect for freelancers, startups and SME's <br> With our stunning receptions, your clients will be greeted with a fresh touch of class and our friendly reception staff will handle your clients with hospitality and ensure that they feel relaxed before you are ready to receive them. They will answer all your incoming calls and then direct them accordingly. If you are out of the office they will take a message and notify you as soon as you are back in office <p></p> <mark>Our state of the art boardroom facilities give our clients the ability to close their business deals in style while enjoying a beverage from the beverage bar. 10 hours of boardroom use is included in the rent and R300 p/h for every hour thereafter.</mark> <p></p> Features <mark><br> - Fully Furnished Move in 24H <br> - Receptionist <br> - Boardroom Facility <br> - Kitchens <br> - Telephone Service <br> - Printing Facility <br> - Internet Facility <br> - Parking <br> - Cleaning <br> - Prime Locations <br> - Water & Electricity </mark>

Grounded Work - school image
Grounded Work

Grounded Work is a coworking space - a work environment that has infrastructure; internet, printers and desks to rent on a monthly or daily basis… but most importantly it has coworkers. <p></p> Coworkers work independently, for themselves, or for the same organisation, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is the way they share their skills and experience, collaborate, and inspire each other by simply sharing a communal work space. In that way Grounded Work is MUCH more than just a shared office space or internet café. It’s the home of coworking energy goodness. Grounded Work was launched in 2015, after we saw an increased need for a café-like space that was more conducive to productive work and most importantly entrepreneurial growth and community. <mark>At Grounded Work you will find just that. By just spending time with like-minded individuals in a shared workspace, or by attending our regular meetups and events - a coworking membership with us will be the best investment you can make in your dreams.</mark>

The Corner Office - school image
The Corner Office

The Corner Office is a dynamic and flexible coworking space designed for you to run your growing or established business, with all the perks of being in a larger office. The inspiration for The Corner Office was born out of two main factors. <p></p> The first is our personal experience of working from a home office and shared offices, and the challenges that come with it, as well as Jill’s experience as a training consultant and the variety of work environments she encountered over the years: <br> - Home offices can be a challenge on the rest of the family who have to agree to “office” rules. <br> - The feeling of never leaving the office <br> - An isolated office can be lonely! <br> - Being in an office environment can be refreshing and if you meet like-minded people in similar circumstances, the networking and inspiration opportunities grow. <br> - Meeting venues can be expensive and a coffee shop sometimes isn't appropriate for confidential issues <br> - Travel time to work is often an issue when your head office is several traffic jams or even a flight away <p></p> The second factor was to realise we were by no means unique and there was indeed quite demand for a space like The Corner Office. <br> - We can provide a variety of work solutions, from a private space, to a desk in an open-plan office, whether you want your own desk or just a desk now and then. <br> - We can offer a meeting room for confidential meetings and more casual options for those smaller powwows. <br> - In every scenario the environment is friendly, professional and has the amenities you would want in an office. This without the outlay in the cost of setting one up for yourself. <p></p> Why “The Corner Office” <br> <mark>We believe that you all deserve a Corner Office, all of us entrepreneurial spirits are champions and leaders in our own way! <p></p> From our research with the local market we believe firmly that work needs to be close to your home – around the corner. We spend too much of our lives travelling and in this age of great internet connectivity, there is so much we can do with a good connection, great coffee and the odd bit of company from like -minded people who are working in the same way as we are.</mark>

The innovations brought about by Information and Communication Technology are radically altering our society by changing the way our economy, educational systems, and social and cultural interactions work. This is particularly relevant to the kinds of activities that graduates encounter in their day-to-day personal and professional lives. <p></p> As this technological innovation progresses, <mark>it will become increasingly important to have a knowledge and an understanding of the nature of information and communication technologies, and how they are changing. Anticipating these changes will enhance the choices you make in your personal and working life. Naturally, the more knowledge you have, the more you will be able to exploit the power of Information and Communication Technology.</mark> <p></p> History <br> Rhodes University acquired its first computer in 1966, one which was housed in the Department of Physics. Computer Science was first introduced as a major subject under the auspices of the Department of Applied Mathematics in 1970 by the late Professor Rolf Braae. In 1972 the first post graduate courses were given. A separate Computer Science Department was established in 1980, but has continued to work in close cooperation with the other Mathematical Sciences Departments, with the Department of Physics and Electronics, and more recently with the Department of Information Systems. <p></p> The Department was originally housed in the upper two levels of a three storey building, Struben, for many years, incorporating several large computer laboratories, academic and post graduate studies, and lecture facilities. However, the department grew tremendously, making new accommodation essential. <p></p> Over several years, a new home for Computer Science and Information Systems was sought, and finally a donation from Dr Robin Hamilton made a new building possible. The building was completed in September 2001 and was officially opened in April 2002 as the Hamilton Building.

The purpose of the focus area in Data Engineering is to prepare students for the Fourth Industrial Revolution where the work environment has fundamentally changed and there is a flood of data that needs to be structured, modelled and analysed for data-driven organizations, to discover the underlying knowledge. Data Engineering contains all the tasks required to make data available for analysis, knowledge discovery and decision-making processes. The most important task of a data engineer is to develop and maintain an organization's data pipeline systems and implement algorithms to transform data into a usable format for analysis. The tasks of a data engineer include data collection, data storage, data synchronization, data transformation, data cleaning, data management, and data model development. <p></p> <mark>This requires a considerable set of technical skills, including in-depth knowledge of database design and various programming languages. Data engineers are often responsible for building algorithms to provide easier access to structured and unstructured data, but it requires an understanding of the goals of an organization using large datasets.</mark> Data engineers need excellent communication skills to connect with different stakeholders inside and outside the organization to understand what Big Data business leaders want to earn and also to present their findings in a way the audience can easily understand. <p></P> Throughout the degree, the focus area in Data Engineering is built on the foundations of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. Students develop the engineering skills to create mathematical, physical, and statistical models of real systems, including data systems. After obtaining the qualification, Stellenbosch University's Data Engineers can integrate these areas of knowledge to critically analyse complex systems to come up with innovative solutions to problems. This degree is accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa and hence, is recognized through the Washington Accord.
