This Master in Mechanical Engineering from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) trains students in the main fields of mechanical engineering: fluid mechanics, analytical and computational applied mechanics, the mechanics of materials and structures, applied dynamics, mechanical production and machines (thermal, thermodynamic, and energetic).


Through pedagogical laboratories, case studies, projects and a master’s thesis, you will get hands-on experience, and you will become acquainted with the cutting edge methods used in relevant fields.

You will undertake numerous integrated projects, which will allow you to conceive, model, achieve and validate experimental systems, prototypes and devices.

Your future job

Mechanical engineers are present in all industrial sectors: the chemical industry, pharmaceutical and food industries, electronics and telecommunications industries, metallurgy, aeronautics, construction and engineering, large scale distribution, banking and consulting services, nanotechnologies and medical technologies, etc.

They play a role as researchers and developers, are responsible for production or management and hold jobs in marketing and sales (of advanced technological products).We find civil engnieers in departments of finance, information technology, training or quality control, the public sector, higher education, or in the Ministry of equipment and transportation.
