Masters in Engineering is better. After HND or BEng, gain certification, then top up with Masters in Engineering.

I would think that PROFESSIONAL certification for SKILLS and knowledge acquisition is way better than another attestation of more years READING books. IMO!

Personally I think professional certs is more recognised than masters. Since you experienced already don't go and waste time and money in the university again. They cannot help you.

Your masters, first class, overseas degrees don't matter much in Nigeria. It's only those that know people that get jobs

It all depends on how you want to chanel your career progression. If you want to follow the academic path then go for your master but if you want to toil the engineering field then go and get certifications and the sky will be your starting point. Shalom!

Re: Masters In Engineering Or Professional Certification In Engineering by Whizpeter(m): 7:12am On Aug 28, 2016
Bro make I no lie you....
Just go for the professional certs.. It would pay in the long run..
Moreover, masters don turn B.Eng nowadays, e no dey guarantee jobs...

Someone came to NL yesterday to wail over not getting a job after spending N6.7m on a masters program in the UK..

Be wise bro, don't be like that young man!

it depends on where you want to work? If you want to work in a government parastatal or in academics that masters has an advantage in entry grade, if you are working in a private firm, relevant certification might come in handy for employment purposes and postings. All in all, it's advisable to find where you want to work and build up from there.

Professional certification far far better.i was lucky to come to Qatar with free visa through my friend.what helped me was my discipline in school mechanical engineering. I met an Igbo pastor who works with Qatar petroleum he took interest in me. We were talking one day , he asked me what did I study I told him mechanical engineering. He asked me what can I do , said I had experience in power generation.he laughed and said to me electricity is stable here you can not get nothing.He said to me have you had about project management I said yes . He said to me he is mechanical engineer and a project planing and control engineer in QP. He said I will teach you project management and how to use premavera oracle project software.he did and now proud mechanical engineer in project management. Am now working with a well known company in Qatar as planning engineer.with salary of 1m naira a month if converted with free transport and free flight to and frow annual vacation. Nigerians control safety work here with NEBOSH.
