STEP # 1 – Understand the Engineering Scholarship Process
The first step is always to gather necessary information about the process that we are about to undertake. An engineering degree, in whichever part of the world, will always require that a candidate has, at least, completed secondary education, while the bachelor’s degree in engineering is the first level of education that is required in becoming a professional engineer. While the bachelor’s degree for engineering may take four to five years, it may take between one to four years of practice or training education before one is allowed to take the licensing examination. This may vary from country to country and school to school. Thus, it is important to take this into serious consideration for engineering education may take sometime before one can practice the degree in profession.
