Engineering Studies

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

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.

 

Many programs in Africa take place in a very unusual cultural and physical environment than most students are familiar with in the good old days. Come To Know to adapt to this living conditions is part of fun and the challenge of living there. The challenge is intellectual, emotional and physical.
