A Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) or Master of Science (Technology)[1] is an academic degree to be differentiated from a Master of Engineering.

A Master of Science in Engineering can require completion of a thesis and qualifies the holder to apply for a program leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in engineering. (A Master of Engineering requires completion of a project and does not qualify its holder to apply for a PhD in engineering.) The Master of Science in Engineering is sometimes considered the equivalent of the diplom degree in engineering in countries that have that degree.

Equivalent degrees are:

  • Dipl.ing. (Diplomierter Ingenieur) before name - Austria
  • Ir. (burgerlijk ingenieur) before name - The Netherlands/Belgium (NL)
  • Ir. (Ingénieur Civil) before name - Belgium (FR)
  • Civ.ing. (Civilingenjör, not to be confused with civil engineering) - Sweden
  • Cand.polyt. (Civilingeniør, not to be confused with civil engineering) - Denmark
  • Siv.ing. (sivilingeniør, not to be confused with civil engineering) - Norway
  • DI (Diplomi-insinööri) - Finland
  • mgr inż. (magister inżynier) before name - Poland
