A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.
Electronics studies focus on the design of systems and devises with circuit boards. Electric energy is a main component and the field incorporates other areas as well such as chemistry, math and physics. Students may be able to specialize in certain areas such as information electronics and digital media technology.

The purpose of the qualification is to develop an engineer with advanced abilities in applying fundamental engineering sciences and/design and synthesis, and related principles to specific problems of society at large. One of the main objectives of this process is to develop an advanced capability to conduct fundamental engineering research independently. It also promotes a lifelong learning approach.Qualification outcomes
