This program’s primary objective is to train proficient mechanical engineers with a comprehensive foundation in both theoretical principles and industrial practices. Graduates of this program will acquire the expertise necessary for involvement in the design and production of entire machinery systems or individual machine components. They will be adept at utilizing Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools, managing and optimizing complete production processes across various engineering domains. Mechanical engineers emerging from this program will possess a problem-solving attitude and the ability to collaborate effectively within large-scale project teams.
This program is ideally suited for applicants intrigued by contemporary Production and Manufacturing technologies, including the exciting realm of Industry 4.0 applications.
This program equips students with fundamental knowledge in Mechanical Engineering within the context of Production Technologies. The curriculum encompasses rigorous core subjects such as Applied Solid- and Fluid Mechanics, complemented by advanced computational tools such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Students are exposed to both theoretical underpinnings and practical methodologies, preparing them for the creation and implementation of complex engineering systems and structures. To enhance the practical aspects of learning, students have access to cutting-edge laboratories, including the Laboratory of Materials Sciences, the Laboratory of Production Technologies, and the Control Technique Laboratory.
The program’s strength is underpinned by a highly qualified academic faculty committed to maintaining a high standard of education. Modern infrastructure, including equipment such as tensile testers, CNC machines, SEM microscopes, and robots, as well as well-equipped computer labs featuring software like Ansys, Solid Edge, Inventor, ADAMS, and Matlab, support the teaching and research activities. The Faculty’s extensive library houses thousands of volumes, enriching the learning experience.
First-year students receive invaluable guidance through a mentorship system provided by senior students and PhD candidates, helping them navigate the challenges of university life.
In addition to rigorous theoretical training, the Faculty’s close ties with the business community and collaborative research and development projects provide students with up-to-date practical knowledge. The Faculty has established bilateral agreements with numerous international universities, enabling students to undertake semesters abroad or participate in global research initiatives.
Students are encouraged to engage in extracurricular undergraduate research activities, with guidance from leading faculty members. These students have the opportunity to showcase their research findings at both national and international conferences.
Furthermore, the program’s limited class size, with only 48 spots available, fosters a more close and interactive learning environment. This enables students to engage more effectively with professors in smaller groups, facilitating a deeper understanding of the subjects.
