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.

Improvements made to manmade things such as tools, structures and machines are largely due to the efforts of people in the field of engineering. These people combine creativity with mathematics and worldly knowledge, resulting in innovation.

 

Australia has the third largest number of foreign students in the world despite having a community of only 23 million. These are strong academic credentials, but Australian institutions are just as highly ranked as the cities that house them around the native land.

Victoria has eight universities and various government-run institutions that facilitate technical and further education. In addition, there is a state library which is good for researchers undertaking higher education in the area.
