Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of the engineering disciplines and therefore provides some of the strongest interdisciplinary opportunities in the engineering profession. The programme covers analysis of different materials and technologies used in industry, fundamentals of machine design and product development. The competencies, abilities and skills to develop equipment, components and systems of mechanical nature applying modern CAD/CAE systems are of special importance  for future  career. The programme has a Twin programme option under the ECIU consortium.

Two semesters of alternatives (semesters of free choice) are included into the Programme. According personal needs and interests the students can select:
– Deepening studies in the field of mechanical engineering;
– Development of competencies in practical engineering activities through semester or two semester placement at engineering enterprises (“Extended Practice” model);
– International semester at partner European universities.
