Hi, I have borrowed an explanation for Financial Engineering  from a website and you need to understand if this is what you want to do, since you come from a Engineering background.
Financial engineering is a multidisciplinary field involving financial theory, the methods of engineering, the tools of mathematics and the practice of programming. It has also been defined as the application of technical methods, especially from mathematical finance and computational finance, in the practice of finance.
Financial engineering draws on tools from applied mathematics, computer science, statistics and economic theory. In broadest definition, anyone who uses technical tools in finance could be called a financial engineer.
The main applications of financial engineering are to:
corporate finance
derivatives pricing
financial regulation
portfolio management
risk management
structured products
So if this is the area of expertise you want to be in , you can seek Universities which offer MS in Finance, Banking, Corporate Finance, etc as well.
All the best.
