Master of Technology

I love studying the Master of Technology at Federation University Australia. The motivating and intellectually inspiring environment FedUni provides makes it impossible to overlook. With only a handful of suitable options available, I chose FedUni because I believe that it is not only a brilliant combination designed to improve learning, but also a sustainable one. The lifestyle and low cost of living, coupled with the population in the city surrounding FedUni, is quite affordable and comfortable compared to other larger cities in Victoria. The Master of Technology course provides a wide range of resources to develop my skills in this area, such as SAP - the world's largest enterprise software company. I will be well prepared to undertake SAP certification upon completion of the course. Small classes and practical preparation is another great aspect of the course. Part of my long-term career plan was to attain a higher education. When I graduate, I would like to become an administrator and be a part of a production and design team. FedUni is making my career dreams come true and I have found it a great option.
