What will I learn?

Students with a bachelor degree who aspire to grow their talents will enjoy the Electrical and Computer Engineering (MSc Thesis) program. The research-based degree usually takes students two years of full-time study beyond a bachelor’s degree, placing them at the heart of a group of like-minded researchers who are looking at challenging, real-world problems to find innovative, practical solutions. Successful students can go on to work in high-tech companies in positions such as research and development engineer, system/network architect, system designer, system engineer, application engineer, application developer, and software architect.
