Introduction to the Master's Programme

If you are exploring your options for School of Mechanical Engineering programmes, here are three types of Master's degrees you may find interesting: Master by Coursework, Master by Mixed-Mode, and Master by Research.
The first type of degree, Master by Coursework, typically involves taking courses and completing assignments and exams. This type of degree is ideal for those who want to gain knowledge in a particular subject area or enhance their skills without conducting research. Master by Mixed-Mode program involves assessment depending upon the coursework and dissertation (research work). The programme allows outgoing bachelor students to specialise in various fields at the master's level.
On the other hand, a Master's by Research degree focuses on independent research on a particular topic. The students conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor, and they are required to present their findings in a dissertation or thesis. Master by Coursework, Master by Mixed-Mode, and Master by Research programs offer students distinct advantages and a rich educational experience. It all depends on your interests and career goals.
