Course content

Studying engineering will give you the opportunity to make a real and lasting impact on the world, although not all engineering degrees are the same. Liverpool School of Engineering prides itself on developing modern professional engineers for the future that industry wants. We have received many accolades from the engineering industry who regard our graduates amongst the most employable in the world. Innovative teaching methods, world class facilities and strong industry links make us an excellent choice for your engineering postgraduate degree. As a Russell Group University we offer research-led courses that enhance your career and equip you to meet tomorrow's engineering challenges.

The aim of the Advanced Mechanical Engineering programme is to develop to masters degree level the knowledge, skills and understanding of our graduates to meet the needs of industry. Topics include Energy Generation, Advanced Manufacturing, Automotive, Renewable Energy Sources, Management Techniques and Uncertainty, Reliability and Risk. The programme aims to provide graduates with a sound understanding of Advanced Mechanical Engineering principles and the ability to undertake teamwork and communicate ideas.

This programme aligns with the current accredited Undergraduate integrated Masters MEng 4th year in Mechanical Engineering with co-taught M level modules from the existing programme organised in two 12-week semesters with examinations at the end of each semester worth 120 credits from a total of 180. This is then combined with an MSc advanced research project over the summer term worth the remaining 60 credits.


Project work which contributes 60 credits, will be based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, and will be carried out in laboratories in the University or at an approved placement in industry. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc(Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques, ability to analyse assembled data, and assessment of outcomes.
