Technology

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

One of the greatest aspects of technology is that when it is embedded in machines and devices, most of the time the individual operating the machine or device does not need to understand the specifics of how the technology works. For example, someone using a computer does not need to understand the mechanics of the hard drive to benefit from using it.

Portugal is one of the warmest European countries. University programs are very affordable. In fact Portugal has one of the lowest living costs for students. Enjoy the the great beaches in Algarve or the old wings of history in the capital city of Lisbon.
