In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Studies in engineering and technology prepare you for the technologically oriented workforce of today.
Members of the workforce with engineering and technology training are sought out by many industries including medical research and computer software development.
