From job prospects only, which masters would you do:

a) Msc in Computer aided engineering
b) Msc in Building services

I am not considering my interests are here as both are relevant here.

Ask the unis or check their websites to see where grads end up.

I would, not be coming here in all honesty if I had, not seen Uni website.

I will be direct with you as seem to be not getting the gist: you are not helping. I need someone who actually has knowledge of engineering market not a redirection to uni website. Sorry to be rude but you seem to be hung up on same point.

You can be as rude as you like hun but that just reflects on you. No one wants to help someone who is rude so you’re not helping yourself here. I’ve been advising applicants for many years so get it perfectly when someone can’t be bothered to look stuff up and just wants a magic answer so no I’m not here to spoon feed you.

The point is that people on here are in the same boat as you ie applicants so you need to do your own research starting with the resources I mentioned above. If you’ve already looked at the resources you should have your answer or at least be able to tell us what you’ve found and why you’re still stuck.

Building services/HVAC (whatever you want to call it) is, or at least was quite hot a few years ago...

What exactly would a masters in CAE involve?

I have been applying for jobs in graduate mechanical engineering jobs in all variety e.g. project managment, draughtsman, quality and at least after every 2-3 mechancial engineering job requires some knowledge in building services or preference to such a qualification.From what I gathered, the building services seem to be a lot in demand but I fail to progress in those job applications when it comes to mechanical engineering with bias towards building services.

The CAE is of Queen Mary which has typical: FEA, CFD, and computational engineering (programming sort of stuff) however since I am going to work in UK I do, not know whether this will widen my skillset as an engineer or will the building services help my case more. I read the news that CAE is growing field with potential but with the my current job research I do, not see it in UK, or maybe you could enlighten me on it.

At the moment I have accepted both offers from both unis: MSC building services and MSC computer aided engineering.

This forum is "part of my research" to gather other people experiences and views on the subject matter, it is not understood why you took it to mean spoonfeeding.

It would be more understandable if you do, not have sufficient information, at the moment, on the engineering job market, in UK, to give me a reasonable opinion or advice.

Thanks for all you could do within the capacity.

I am not sure where the idea of spoonfeeding came but I am not studying or working for you, so does, not make sense. This forum is "part of my research" to gather other people experiences and views, is what you have failed to grasp. You have a nice day, and thanks for all you could do within the capacity.
Just good luck hun. A change in attitude will get you a long way. What you’re failing to grasp is that asking other applicants is not going to get you anywhere. You need to ask course providers where their grads end up. Or talk to employers and see what qualifications they’re looking for for jobs you want to do. You’ve come on here expecting a certain kind of help called spoon feeding ie asking people what you should do but I’m informing you that it doesn’t happen on here. Giving people a bit of info about what research you have done and where exactly you are stuck will help you. But hey if you want to carry on wasting your time feel free.

Ps:- I work for a uni in the UK and have been on TSR for a long time so know who comes on here and it isn’t employers or past grads.

PPs:- now that you’ve finally told us a bit of back story have you asked employers for feedback where your application has not progressed. Is it down to qualifications or something else?

What search terms are you using? A lot of mechanical engineering jobs can go under different names. In terms of CAD, FEA and CFD, there are some specialist jobs in these areas, but I suspect that the majority of people using these tools are using them as part of their wider job (e.g. mechanical design). They are taught to some degree as part of the undergraduate engineering curriculum - have you previously covered them?
