Our MEng Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering programme has been designed to meet the growing demand for graduates with both mechanical engineering knowledge and manufacturing skills. By completing this degree, you will develop the high level technical expertise required to practice manufacturing engineering and function in the role of Chartered Engineer within the engineering and manufacturing industries. Alongside the core engineering syllabus you will learn essential manufacturing techniques in areas such as manufacturing processes and materials engineering plus business skills. LJMU is currently seeking Institution of Mechanical Engineers accreditation for this new programme. Such accreditation will qualify you for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Links with industry and placement opportunities Links with national and international companies, such as BMW, Airbus Industries, Rolls Royce and Shell mean that the course is tailored to the needs of employers.
