Applying for MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering after obtaining an MEng?Watch
The MPhil also not only teaches chemical engineering but also teaches the business side of it all such as technology management, which is another added benefit as it would be useful for going into industry, I think. I am planning to work hard during undergraduate studies so that I can get a scholarship to study at Cambridge after I graduate. But the question is: Would it be worth it?
I'm also thinking of just getting a BEng and then studying the MPhil at Cambridge with a scholarship. That way I can save 1 years worth of tuition fees. But the MPhil at Cambridge isn't accredited which means I'll have to add in more work in order to become chartered.
My final concern is that if I have an MPhil in something, employers might see it as a failed PhD. So in the end it might actually affect my chances of getting a job. I really don't know.
No one would see an MPhil as a 'failed PhD,' given that, well, it isn't a PhD! If you wanted to do a PhD, you'd have applied for one...
