Masters in Engineering

Cast your mind back just one year and the world looks comparatively alien compared to the technological, scientific, medical and commercial changes and innovations we enjoy today. From BMW’s i3 electric car, personal drones, Google Glass and the Apple watch to genomic-based cancer testing, bionic eyes, genetic engineering and the vast potential of 3D printing, the force behind many of the world’s greatest advances is often a team of engineers.

With engineers forming an integral part of any organization looking to increase efficiency or create a better product through a creative, innovative solution, engineering graduates are likely to find themselves in high demand across a wide range of sectors. Your interest in studying a master’s in engineering may lead you to careers in fields as far-ranging as space exploration and advanced medical treatments to cyber security and entrepreneurship.
