SYNOPSISFollowing the rapid development of higher educational sector in the country, postgraduate study is becoming a common trend for many engineering graduates. Postgraduate programs offered in a higher educational institutions range from full time research to part time taught course program. More recently, many universities are offering direct PhD scheme where students with first degree can enroll in. Besides, there are engineers who are signing up with Engineering Doctorate (EngD) and Master in Business Administration (MBA) programs too. Hence, deciding which postgraduate program to enroll with is not an easy task. This talk will provide some guidelines how the engineers can decide which postgraduate program is suitable for him/her.
