Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

help please

Dear Nadeem,

I reviewed the information on both sites and prepared the following comparison for you:

City University Reading University
Time 1 year full time 2 years part time
Cost 4950 pounds 3630 pounds
Scope 10 modules + Project 4 core+4elective+4 assignments

The courses at City has include a planning module, whereas Reading does not contain one.

If you are a junior engineer seeking a masters, then it would better to stop for a year and take a degree and then move on. Whereas, if you are a senior engineer who can not leave work, then you can afford to take 4 modules every year at one week each and do the remaining work off site.

I hope that I made things more clear for you to decide.

Good luck,
