The Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the New School of Science & Technology | FCT NOVA lasts for three years and corresponds to the first cycle resulting from the disintegration of the Integrated Master in Mechanical Engineering. It starts operating in the academic year 2021/22 and is accredited for 6 years by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).
Mechanical Engineering has application in all areas of economic activity. To meet this universality, the course offers comprehensive preparation. In the 3rd year, the student can choose the one corresponding to a curricular unit from a wide range of other units offered by the faculty for other courses.
Also in the 3rd year, an internship is offered in a company and, thus, contact with the business reality and with the activity of engineers in that environment. The course culminates in a product development project in a collaborative environment.
The Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering (2nd cycle) will be the natural continuation of the Licentiate Degree, however this, although at university level, can also result in a direct exit to the labor market. The mechanical engineering training area has shown very high levels of employability.
Erasmus+ Programme: Under the Erasmus+ programme, students have the possibility to undertake a period of study at a European university, as an integral part of the degree study programme. It is a very rewarding experience both academically and personally.
Business fabric: The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering maintains excellent relationships with the business fabric and employers, providing student involvement in internships.
