Electro-mechanical Engineering, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
  • French, English


The fundamentals of electricity, mechanics, thermodynamics, chemistry and material science form the core of the program.  These subjects gives electromechanical engineers a truly interdisciplinary education. A large scale integrated project included in the curriculum and a 80 day internship in an industry ensure that they also acquire the appropriate skills to organize and manage large scale projects, to work in a team and to share and communicate their findings.

The program is characterized by a strong focus on energy issues.  The different subjects of the curriculum converge towards the capability to understand, model, design and optimize energy systems, not only from a technical point of view but also by taking into account the economical and environmental aspects.  Advanced electives courses are offered in the fields of power production, transport and distribution, energy and mobility, modelling and simulation.

The language of instruction is French.

The program results from a collaboration between the department of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering, the Montefiore Institute and the Department of Chemical Engineering.  The three departement and the associated research units bring their complementary expertises to provide students with the interdisciplinary education necessary to develop innovative solutions addressing energy issues.

Depending on your educational background or depending on the focus, it is possible that the prerequisites / corequisites for the 1st year of the programme are presented in the block 2. You are therefore invited to read through the list of courses in block 2 even if you are registering for the first time in this master.

As part of the Master in electro-mechanical engineering, students must follow or approve 65 core training credits (including placement and final dissertation), 25 credits of optional courses and 30 credits from one of the two professional focuses.

The Electro-mechanical Engineering programme is offered at University of Liège.


The program has been accredited by the French Commission des Titres d'Ingénieurs and received the European quality label EUR-ACE.
