The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.
Although technology may seem like a contemporary development, humans have been using technology since they began converting natural resources into tools. For example, the understanding of fire and its use in prehistoric cooking could be considered a facet of technology.
Estonia is among other things known for its forests (they make up almost half of the territory) and for being the only country in Europe with almost total 4G network coverage. Estonia provides high-level and internationally recognized education, and many universities in the country offer degree programs in English.
