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) 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.
