Mechanical Engineers enhance the quality of our life as almost every aspect of modern life involves directly or indirectly mechanical engineering.

The Master study is designed to provide knowledge and skills for applying a scientific foundation to solve engineering problems in various engineering industries.

Studies focus on specialised courses in Applied Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering and Processing Techniques with a particular interest in the development of new composite materials, analysis of large dynamic systems, design of medical equipment and robotic devices.

Top level research in such areas as non-linear mechanics, mechanics of composite materials, optimization of structures, robotics,
Lectures focus on practical activities and include both academic and professional subjects,
Studies are very hands-on and lectures are given by practicing professionals.
