Technology Studies

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

Technology is broadly defined as a collection of processes which are used to create goods or services. Technology therefore refers to the knowledge of such processes, or the processes themselves, which are often embedded into machines or devices.

Africa is a continent of 53 independent countries and a rich mix of native peoples, cultures, economies and history. Africa is the second largest continent in the world.
