FACULTY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, TRANSPORT AND AERONAUTICS
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.
Graduates can pursue a mechanical engineer career in both local and international projects as well as in various companies – automobile, shipyards, railway transport, etc., where there is a requirement for expertise in combustion, noise and vibration process control, robotics, quality management, biological engineering, space research, liquid mechanics, water supply, planning machine and mechanism maintenance, consumer goods design, pollution control and mechanical synthesis of new materials.
In addition, designers and mechanical engineers can work in companies involved in packaging industry, automation of industrial processes.
There are graduates who pursue their career as experts in insurance companies and municipal enterprises.
