A bachelor’s degree is a post-secondary degree awarded after completed 120 credits. It usually takes eight semesters to complete a Bachelor’s degree. While completing an undergraduate course, candidates have to study general courses and chose a major specific subject. A Bachelor’s degree can also be called a baccalaureate in certain countries.
Students seeking to start a Bachelor in Engineering and Technology will be able to chose from a variety of fields and degrees. This allows students to select the field in which they are most interested. The field of engineering is concerned with practical applications of scientific theories for the implementation of solutions.
