The MEng programme satisfies the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) or European Engineer (EurIng).
Programme in detail
The programme follows the Mechanical Engineering BEng (H300) for the first two years.
In Years Three and Four students move on to study advanced engineering science and undertake a 300-hour individual research project on a topic of their choice. They can also choose their engineering specialism by selecting one of five thematic streams: biomedical engineering, materials engineering, manufacturing, management, or simulation and analytics. The most important element of the MEng programme is the two-year Capstone Project: a team project in which students design, build and race a single seat race car, a high speed bicycle or an underwater remotely operated vehicle; or in which students work with our industrial partners, alongside professional engineers, as they develop solutions to real industrial problems.
These projects are designed to transform student engineers into fledgling professionals: they are rewarding for the students, are valued by industry; and have been commended by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.

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 turbines and a water flume.
Put your learning into practice through a year in industry
There is nothing like spending a year working in industry as part of your degree for consolidating your knowledge and giving you a head start in the job market after you graduate. A year in industry can be taken in all our programmes.
Shape our flexible programmes around you
Specialise in one discipline or develop a broad skill base across all engineering disciplines.
Gain professional accreditation
All our BEng/MEng degree programmes are accredited, or preparing for accreditation, by at least one professional institution, providing you with a solid foundation for your career. A MEng degree from Liverpool satisfies the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
