EMC has recently partnered with the Handwerkskammer (Chamber of Commerce) in Erfurt, Germany in order to improve the automotive engineering sectors’ income and employment prospects in the Eastern Cape through practice-oriented and advanced training of the Automotive lecturers at TVET colleges in the Eastern Cape.

The College also has an ongoing partnership with Belfast Metropolitan College in Northern Ireland. The Advanced partnership came to an end in 2017, but the Legacy partnership begins in 2018, which will be a self-sustainable project. The project aims to improve employability skills through advanced partnership-building with industry and the development of soft skills.
