A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.
Engineering studies can explore a wide variety of topics, including mechanical, civic, chemical, or even biological engineering. Topics covered in one of these programs may range from foundational engineering principles to applied mathematical techniques.

Master of Engineering
This research-focused degree is designed for graduates who wish to do further research and develop an innovative solution to an engineering question. Excellence in advanced engineering design, research and development skills are core features of the degree.
As a Master of Engineering (ME) graduate you will have the opportunity to either seek employment as a professional engineer or start a research career.
The ME normally takes 12 months to complete full-time. It builds on prior studies at the undergraduate level, such as the four-year BE(Hons) or BSc(Tech). The degree requires 120 points, which can either be made up of 30 points in taught papers and a 90-point dissertation (research project), or one 120-point thesis....
