A Master of Science degree in engineering (abbreviated M.Sc.Eng. or MScEng) or a Master of Science degree in technology (abbreviated M.Sc.Tech. or MScTech)[1] is a type of Master of Science degree awarded by universities in many countries. It is an academic degree to be differentiated from a Master of Engineering degree.

A Master of Science degree in engineering can require completion of a thesis and qualifies the holder to apply for a program leading to a Doctor of Philosophy degree (often abbreviated Ph.D. or D.Phil) in engineering. (A Master of Engineering degree requires completion of a project and does not qualify its holder to apply for a Ph.D. in engineering.[dubious ]) 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. (Diplôme d'ingénieur) before name, France;
  • Dipl.Ing. (Diplom-Ingenieur) before name, Austria;
  • Dipl.Ing. or Dipl.Ing (FH) (Diplom-Ingenieur) before name, Germany;

  • 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;
