Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject.
Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Master in Disaster Management
It is well known that Bangladesh is a highly disaster-prone country and particularly in the context of widespread poverty, disasters often assume great proportions; both risk and vulnerability to various disasters are extensive. Some disasters, such as floods and drought, are annual and cause a national loss at a regular frequency. Others, such as cyclones and earthquakes, are waiting in the offing, and it is not hard to imagine the destruction that could occur in a severe earthquake in the rapidly growing and densely populated urban areas. There is thus an important need for disaster management in this context where disasters are a part of life.
Therefore, the Postgraduate Programs in Disaster Management comprising of diploma and master's degree programs are being conducted at BRAC University. It runs as a semi-autonomous program within BRAC University with a link under the Department of Architecture. The diploma is a 2-semester course; on completion of another two semesters, there is the option of obtaining a master's degree by completing a dissertation. Besides, tailor-made theme-based certificate courses (1-5 days) are offered, if requested by any organization....

MASTER IN COMPUTER APPLICATIONS
The branches and applications of Computer Science are increasing day-by-day. Along with e-enabled services, applications in medical sciences, biological sciences, the arts, film industry etc are forever increasing worldwide. To support such diversity, the range of skills required and hence jobs in the computing industry are also increasing. Local market experience bears witness that fresh graduates lack knowledge of how Computer Science fits into the business world. These graduates have a lot of skills, however, they are at a loss as to how computers can be used as tools to increase business efficiency. Local software development projects often fail. For such projects, it has been found that the brunt of project time is spent during final implementation. Sometimes it is found that client requirements have not been properly understood making a lot of re-engineering necessary in the final stages. Not only does this lengthen the development cycle, projects often fail at this point. This generally points to lack of proper analysis and design of the project requirement. Documentation for software development projects is often poor. The root of this is found in the severe lack of communication skills in graduates. They shy away from having to write often they don't know where to start....

A computer system is a means to solve some of today's existing problems. The problems in the developing world are more pressing than the problems of the developed world. How well a computer system has solved a problem depends on how well the concerned professional has tailored the hardware + software to suit the needs of the situation at hand.
The term professional is being applied to the persons who set up the hardware, develop or tailor the software and implement a computer system as a solution to a need. To do this effectively, the professional has not only to understand the nature of hardware and software but has, to some extent, be conversant with the problem to which the solution is being applied. The problem would generally be a business related problem, but could also be a technological, social or developmental one....
