The Applied Mechanics study programme is primarily focused on the numerical and experimental methods of mechanics, as well as their application in the engineering and automotive industry. It is a promising programme, the graduates of which find employment in research and development centres as expert activity and computer simulation specialists. The programme at the Doctoral level provides students with great scientific potential and extensive research opportunities. The scientific activities of Doctoral students are focused on material research, numerical and experimental method development, mechanical system and structure analysis, limit state evaluation, reliability and service life of components and structures.
