Mechanical Engineering, BSc

Objectives and Perspectives

The aim of the Mechanical Engineering BSc program is to train professionals who possess

  • a well-grounded and broad knowledge that graduates of this Faculty can apply immediately in their work and also use as the basis for further studies on master level
  • an ethical philosophy of engineering and a respect for the human element respectively

Our students acquire practical knowledge in technology, in system engineering, in designing software i.e. CAD, CAE, CAM and FEM.
Through the learning of basic law, economics, quality management and maintenance strategies, students are capable to carry out projects concerning production and inspection.
