I am a Final Year Mechanical Engineering student. I want to do my Masters in the Design Engineering field. Currently I can see 2 options:
Master of Science - offered in many Universities ex: GeorgiaTech. It deals more with research. It requires a research thesis most of the times. It gets completed in about 2 years.
Master of Engineering - offered in few Universities ex: Cornell University. It deals more with developing your skills required for doing a job in that field. It does not require a research thesis. It gets completed in a year.
So, my question is: 1. What exactly do we learn/develop skills/improve/do, etc in each of these programs.
I am unable to get a clear picture as to what exactly will be the change in me brought by each of these programs?
What distinguishes a M.S. Graduate from a M.Eng. Graduate & vice versa?
And which one of these Graduates get jobs in Companies easily in the related field?
