Doing another masters degree after having a masters degree

  1. Oct 23, 2012 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I'm from Malaysia and I have a B.Sc. in Nuclear Science.

    A university here is currently having a research collaboration with a my company to develop and qualify my company's Pipeline Automated Ultrasonic Testing Equipment and I'm currently involve in the project by doing the statistical analysis of the data collected to determine the probability of detection of the defect, performance check of the equipment and examining the macrograph of the weld sectioning. Apart from doing the qualification work, I can actually choose to register as a part time masters student, work on my thesis and get M.Sc. in material science.

    But anyway, my main interest is in nuclear science and engineering. I planned to further my study maybe in masters of plasma physics or nuclear engineering in the future.

    So, what do you guys think of taking another masters degree after already having one?

    It depends on how much time your want to spend in school, and how easily you can fund it. But you can have two master's degrees, yeah, it's a thing. My dad has an MBA and a master's in Comp Sci.
