Overview

FACULTY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, TRANSPORT AND AERONAUTICS
Growing demand for modern and complex industrial machinery, machine tools, robotics and computer-controlled processes require highly qualified technologists for their development, manufacture, use and support.
Specialists in mechanical engineering are professionals who are concerned with the principles of force, energy and motion.
The study programme provides deep understanding of fundamentals of Mechanics. Moreover, it places a strong emphasis on analytical engineering science and technical fundamentals, which require the ability to apply core mathematical skills.
Acquired skills of theoretical calculations and computer applications help to solve problems in mechanics and lab experiments creating a solid basis for a further career in industry or further studies in a master programme.

KEY FEATURES
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.
