Studying Master of Engineering

The Master of Engineering (M. Eng. or ME) is a postgraduate Master's degrees that is achieved for a studies in one of the engineering sciences. The study duration of a Master of Engineering programme differs. There are 1-year as well as 2-year Master programmes offered. According to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) on average 30 credits each semester have to be achieved. A one-year programme has therefore typically 60 ECTS, a two-year programme 120 ECTS accordingly.

The Master of Engineering is academically equal to the Master of Science and Master of Arts. It is however common practise to award the Master of Engineering for rather practical oriented programmes at universities of applied sciences, whereas engineering programmes at universities are awarded with the Master of Science (M. Sc.).

Due to the numerous possibilities for specialisations in the area of Engineering there are further degree types such as the Master of Science in Engineering (M.Sc. in Eng.), the Master of Business Administration and Engineering (MBAE) or the Master of Business Engineering (MBE).

Studying in Portugal

Portugal is one of the most popular countries for study exchange programmes and many universities are active members of the Erasmus program. Portuguese universities are both focusing both on providing valuable theoretical knowledge and on engaging students in prevalent research projects. Many universities are affiliated with several research centres and they have been contributing to more than 1% of the world's highly cited publications.

M.Eng. Information Engineering

The Master in Information Engineering (MEINF) aims at offering specific formation in the generation, distribution, analysis and use of Information in engineering systems. MEINF educates engineers to be able to design, build and test engineering systems centered in information and knowledge processing. Students will learn to design, analyze and implement mathematical models to be applied to complex systems of the industrial or corporate world, and to create efficient strategies to optimize their performance. Throughout their training, students will acquire both the theoretical and methodological tools which will be applied in all fields of engineering, with applications in economics, environmental sciences, life sciences, and other domains.
