Hi, I am just wondering if putting masters in different subject would be alright if i am applying for mechanical engineering jobs & would raise too many questions? Or should i just state "gap year" instead"?

I was, not sure which masters to do at the stage, and i did finance as i liked that field, however recently i feel like i still have passion for mechanical design; however don't know how to explain 1 year doing completely different masters to the employer.

Also, my CAD skills and engineering knowledge are rusty since i haven't practiced it for a year now, how should i address this to the potential employer? Is it ok to still leave FEA and CAD in the CV there then?

Your advice would be appreciated.

Just tailor your CV etc towards the engineering side, i.e. minimise the prominence of your Finance MSc in it except where the skills can be applied to an engineering role.
