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.

Broadly speaking, the field of engineering involves taking empirical evidence, mathematics and knowledge of global systems and using them to create and maintain everything from structures to individual components to whole processes. However, many specializations also exist.

 

Belgium offers a market oriented higher-level education that is based on skills and innovation. The country's higher education institutions offer an interactive at the same time research oriented university education before joining the job market.
