What will I learn?

The Master of Engineering (by research) is particularly appropriate for you if you wish to develop your research abilities without committing yourself to the larger scale doctoral degree. The Masters by research will appeal to those who wish to formalise work related projects, or who wish to gain formal research experience appropriate to particular work situations.

If at this point in time, you are not sure of your suitability in the research arena, you may also opt to pursue the Master’s by research programme. Many of our M.Eng. students with Ph.D. calibre subsequently upgrade their programme to the doctoral programme after a year of study.

However, since our focus is on doctoral programmes, priority is given to those who admit for our Ph.D. study. If you have a good first degree, you are encouraged to apply for admission to our doctoral programme with a research scholarship. There is no bond for our scholarships.
