Why this subject?
Choose a degree that prepares you to be a modern engineer for the future
You’ll benefit from research-led teaching, conducted in collaboration with industry, government, research laboratories and academics.
Benefit from learning in outstanding facilities
Our £32 million redevelopment includes the award-winning Active Learning Laboratory, two research-standard full motion flight simulators (one of which is unique within the academic world), manufacturing robotics, wind tunnels and a water flume.
Shape our flexible programmes around you
Specialise in one discipline or develop a broad skill base across all engineering disciplines.
Gain professional accreditation
All of our BEng/MEng degree programmes are accredited, or preparing for accreditation, by at least one professional engineering institution, providing you with a solid foundation for your career. An MEng degree in aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering from Liverpool, satisfies all of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). We have excellent links with the professional engineering institutions and benefit from their support.
