Engineering & Technology

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.

Studies in engineering and technology prepare you for the technologically oriented workforce of today.

Members of the workforce with engineering and technology training are sought out by many industries including medical research and computer software development.

 

Even though my attend distant learning classes online, several universities hold commencement at several locations. You could even stop taking classes for many weeks during the year without withdrawing and without throwing your student loans into repayment. That is a strong argument many people look at when enrolling in distance learning classes.
