More information about the Engineering & Technology discipline

The discipline is based on the application of existing technology within a field of engineering through the use of basic engineering principles and technical skills. As such, undergraduate and graduate programmes in the field focus primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering to equip graduates with practical technical skills in product improvement, manufacturing, construction or engineering operational functions.

Studying engineering equips students with practical skills to acquire and apply scientific, mathematical, economic, social and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely serve as a solution to the needs of society. Combined with knowledge and processes related to technology, programmes in engineering and technology field provide students tools and skills to manipulate materials so to shape and change the physical world to meet needs. Through hands-on training, students are encouraged to come up with creative applications of scientific principles.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Big Data

    The demand for skills in the field of high-dimensional data processing, otherwise known as Big Data, is increasing dramatically worldwide, yet academic programs for this are still quite rare. The Master of Science in Big Data offered by ENSAI meets the very important need among corporations and organizations of all kinds for graduate-level training nearly non-existent in academic offerings on the French, European, and even international scale.

  • Master in Sound and Music Computing

    At Aalborg University, we offer a new master's programme called Sound and Music Computing. You can study in either Aalborg or Copenhagen. You will be trained to solve problems demanding deep technological insight as well as knowledge on the creative aspects and users. This combination makes the programme in Sound and Music Computing unique in Denmark, and competences in both the technical and creative area are much sought after. As an engineer in Sound and Music Computing, you will become an important player in the new information society. Through a combination of practice and theory in subjects such as data modelling, signal processing, pattern recognition, sound technology and –perception, cognition and interactive systems, you will obtain a solid background in a fast growing field. Annually, Denmark exports sound and music products for over €2 billion such as hearing aids, multimedia productions, music equipment, communication technology, hi-fi equipment, games development and measuring equipment, etc.

  • Master in Engineering

    The Professional Master Of Engineering emphasizes the practice of engineering in either the private or public sector. The program focuses on developing competencies in the areas of engineering design, problem solving, and practice beyond what can be achieved in earning a Bachelor of Science degree in a given engineering discipline. An MEng graduate student is expected to have a focus and degree designation in one of the core UMD disciplines of Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering.

  • Master in Engineering and Project Management

    The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has fifty full-time faculty members and twenty-two staff dedicated to the education of more than 400 undergraduate students and 360 graduate students. The education in the department prepares students for leadership in the profession of civil and environmental engineering. Career opportunities are very strong because of the many pressing needs to improve and expand the infrastructure and protect the environment. Approximately one-quarter of our undergraduates pursue graduate education, one of the highest proportions in the College of Engineering.

  • Master in Architecture

    Architecture is the study of building through orchestrating relationships among artistic, technical, social, cultural, and political issues. The curriculum cultivates inquisitive graduates who approach architectural practice and research with the aptitude for speculative thinking and critical inquiry. Master of Architecture is an accredited professional program for future designers of the built environment to develop a comprehensive design foundation and technical ability.

  • Master in Analytics

    Building from a core in applied statistics, the MS in Analytics provides students with advanced analytical training to develop their ability to draw insights from big data, including: data collection, preparation and integration; statistical methods and modeling; and other sophisticated techniques for analyzing complex data.

  • Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering

    As a highly qualified scholar, you are undoubtedly considering many opportunities for your graduate education. The faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University are conducting cutting-edge research, and we are looking for the very best graduate students worldwide to collaborate with us in our research.

  • Master in Applied Science (Computer Science)

    The Master of Applied Science (MAppSc) is a 180-point, coursework postgraduate degree. A candidate would normally be a graduate but the degree is also open to those with other relevant qualifications.

  • Master in Mechanical Engineering

    Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed.

  • Master in Environmental Engineering Sciences (Systems Ecology & Ecological Engineering)

    EDGE enables engineering professional, military members, and students worldwide to participate in courses, certificates, and degree programs from the UF College of Engineering. Engineers can earn a master’s degree at a time and place convenient to them through programs from UF EDGE. As an EDGE student, you view the same course lectures, complete the same assignments and exams as UF campus based engineering students.

  • Master in Environmental Health and Safety

    The Master of Environmental Health and Safety (M.E.H.S.) program prepares graduates for professional careers in environmental health and safety – encompassing occupational safety, industrial hygiene, ergonomics, risk management and environmental health. However, we strive not only to provide academic-based knowledge, but also the technical and practical skills necessary to be a successful EHS professional. While our coursework covers a broad range of EHS topics, students may also choose areas in which they would like to explore more in-depth. We invite people from all undergraduate backgrounds to apply and offer an evening option for those considering a career change.
