Course content

This Masters in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by IMechE and meets Chartered Engineer status. Study with Liverpool John Moores University, master modern CAD software and progress quickly as a postgraduate in this exciting industry

  • Complete this masters degree in one year (full time)
  • Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, this programme meets Chartered Engineer requirements
  • Study at one the UK’s leading Engineering Schools
  • Close industry links and programme widely recognised by employers as meeting requirements needed to succeed in the industry
  • Excellent career opportunities with consultancies, government bodies and public utilities as well as technical design and mechanical engineer roles
The Mechanical Engineering MSc course is designed so that you can reach senior positions as engineers and technical managers within your career. There is a focus on advanced engineering design, analysis techniques and delivering high quality project results.

The programme adds more depth to experience you may develop within undergraduate Mechanical Engineering degrees and provides a progression route if you have graduated from other relevant programmes in mechanical and manufacturing engineering.

There is a strong emphasis on applying practical analysis tools using industry standard software. Examples of specialist projects include modelling non-linear behaviour in deformed components using Finite Stress Analysis (FSA) and solving complex problems using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

You will learn advanced analytical and experimental skills so that you can design new processes, products and services when you graduate. You will gain the skills to critically analyse existing designs, their functionality and reliability.

The course incorporates many opportunities for acquiring the communications and managerial skills expected at Chartered Engineer status level. Graduating from the programme will also provide you with a sound academic base for further study in the future.
