Students who want to advance their careers should consider the Electrical and Computer Engineering (MEng Course) program, which is often taken on a part-time basis. Ideal for students who aspire to gain more knowledge beyond their bachelor degree, the program usually takes four to six-years of part-time study. Students will be part of a vibrant community of researchers who are focused on finding practical solutions to real-world problems. As a professional degree that is purely course-based, the program prepares students for careers 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.
