The JCSE's History and Vision

The Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE) at Wits University was established in 2005 as a partnership between government, industry and the University. When it was established, the JCSE’s major focus was on developing and growing the software development sector of the local IT industry. Programmes were developed to grow skills, promote the adoption of international best practices, and encourage transformation in the sector. The JCSE also has a strong focus on research and innovation. With respect to research the JCSE has carried out numerous research engagements including and annual ICT Skills Survey and contract research for both government and industry.

In 2012 the JCSE initiated and drove a major project aimed at establishing a digital innovation hub in Johannesburg. This resulted in the establishment of Wits University’s Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct in West Braamfontein in 2016.  In 2017 Tshimologong was spun off by Wits as a separate entity. Over the past year the JCSE has refocused its activities on issues relating to digital transformation and the 4th Industrial Revolution. It aims to provide thought leadership, high-level training and research in these areas.
