As every year passes by, the number of students going abroad to study has constantly increased. While the majority of these students select traditional courses such as Masters in Technology, and MBA in Human Resource, the number of students seeking to pursue unique courses such as Space Engineering, Bio-systems engineering, and Drug Innovation has also gone up. These unique courses are designed in such a manner which provides the students with enormous practical knowledge and skills and the ability to solve major problems in their fields. Following are a list of courses which we felt were unique and will provide the upcoming graduates a huge leap over the rest of their peers.
• Subsea Engineering
Subsea construction is a very important part in the oil and gas industry. However, there are very few engineers who specialize in the field. To fill this gap, the University of Aberdeen provides students interested in this field the opportunity of pursue the unique Master of Science in Subsea Engineering course. The course provides students hand-on experience which will be a huge benefit in the field.
• Acoustical Engineering
The Acoustical Engineering course taught in the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) at the University of South Hampton is a utopian course for the students who love to study the mechanics in the field of acoustics. With advances in science, people who specialize in the field are able to provide solutions in various fields such as medical diagnosis, climate change, audio and noise control and many others.
• Biosystems Engineering
The Masters of Science in Biosystems Engineering program offered at the Wageningen University focuses on the development of technology for the production, processing and storage of food and agricultural non-food, management of the rural area, renewable resources and agro-industrial production chains. The course has been designed to be more practical and encourage its students to innovate and create more number of sustainable technologies which will benefit the world of food processing and storage.
• Drug Innovation
The problems in the world of drugs are numerous. However, there are very few people who can solve these problems. The Utrecht University realizing the immediate need began a Master of Science course in Drug Innovation. Students who pursue this course are able to gain hands on experience in the fields of chemistry, biology and medical sciences. As part of the course, students also have to complete an internship which will allow them to utilize their knowledge more effectively.
• Space Engineering
The global space market is experiencing continuous growth. A major issue in this market is the low supply of space engineers. With the increase in demand the Technische Universitat Berlin has created a Master in Space Engineering allowing students to gain further understanding in achieving their dream of space travel.
