Degree Programmes and Courses

Engineering is one of the most satisfying professions. You get results. You make things happen. You generate new solutions to other people’s problems and at the end of the day, you have the job satisfaction of being able to see your work in action.

Engineering is an intellectually demanding profession, mainly because of the wide range of skills you need to deploy. You are expected to be good at mathematics, to have a sound grasp of basic sciences, to be inventive and creative, to be able to sell your ideas to clients and colleagues and, in due course, to organise and lead fellow professionals.
