Find PhD Programs in Engineering in Africa 2019

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

You can only be in a position to solve advanced engineering problems if you have PhD training in engineering. To be admitted as a doctoral student, one must hold a masters degree in the Engineering or related subject and pass a comprehensive entrance exam.

An African educational adventure can be exciting since the continent's rich traditional heritage is so vital to the culture. Africans legendary hospitality is welcoming to strangers and its multiethnic cities so exciting with its African music, dance and arts, both traditional and modern, constitute whole other worlds of application and delight; and there is a couple of esthetic experiences wherever you go to compare and contrast with the color, swirl, smell, and sounds of an African market.
