The aim of the degree program is to educate specialists in the field of mechanical engineering in its widest sense, which includes the construction, manufacturing, and operation of machines.

The study program includes lectures, tutorials, and laboratory classes in fundamental subjects of mechanical engineering, delivered to students during the first four semesters.

Professional elective subjects of the specialization Design and Production Engineering are conducted during the final three semesters.

The program is based on the so-called CDIO philosophy, i.e. Conceive, Design, Implement, and Operate.

Among fundamental subjects can be mentioned such ones as mechanics, the strength of materials, machine design, materials science, manufacturing techniques, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electrotechnics and electronics as well as welding technology, and hydraulics and pneumatics.

Entry requirements

  • Secondary school leaving certificate.
  • Very good English knowledge.
  • Good knowledge of mathematics or physics.

Career opportunities

The employment opportunities are very wide, ranging from small and medium enterprises to the traditional mechanical engineering companies, such as the production of machine components, steel constructions, automotive industry, shipyards, refineries, refrigeration systems, air conditioning, and ventilation systems, hydrostatic drive systems or numerous branches of servicing companies.

These opportunities do not cover all possible career options. The graduate can find employment in construction offices or pursue second-cycle studies in mechanical engineering or related areas.
