Overview

This exit-only program allows students to gain in-depth knowledge and skills in the particular major that they undertook as part of their undergraduate engineering studies. The course provides an opportunity for engineers to deepen the knowledge and skills gained in their first degree while expanding their managerial and professional engineering knowledge.

This program allows students to choose a program of study that deepens the body of knowledge acquired in their first degree as well as expands knowledge boundaries into policy and engineering management areas. It also provides an opportunity to deepen their knowledge and gain practical skills in a particular major.

Career options

Students who hold an undergraduate engineering degree are able to enhance their knowledge and ability in their respective majors, enabling them to gain and hold employment in relevant engineering fields.
