Engineering Studies

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.

The field of engineering is one which uses mathematics, science and creativity in ways that result in inventions that improve the daily routines of people from all walks of life and in all professional fields.

A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa, has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaner and English as well as Dutch. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love interacting with the Bantus here and the tropical climate of the region.
