Introduction
A Master of Science in Engineering (abbreviated M.Sc Engg or MSc(Engg)), is a postgraduate research-based degree in the field of engineering. It requires completion of a thesis. Usually, only a Master of Science degree is accepted for admission to doctoral studies in engineering. While not absolute, it is differentiated from a Master of Engineering (ME or M.Eng) which involves more coursework or project work and less research. This degree does not lead to a PhD study.
Entry Requirements
Completion of a Bachelor's Degree of Engineering or Science.
Career Prospects
This Masters program recognises the different career pathways that science and engineering professionals working in industry choose to take, usually either managerial or technical. The technical specialisations are especially relevant to the mineral processing or energy sector (e.g. Clean Coal Technology).

Others interested in research and development in materials properties, energy conversion, green manufacturing, quality control, product innovation and commercialisation sectors will also benefit.
Further Study
This program qualifies the holder to apply for a course leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Engineering.
Professional Memberships
An engineer who has studied an MScEngg or MEng may apply to become a Chartered Engineer.
