Mechanical Engineering (ME)

Mechanical engineering is a widely profiled study programme, the graduate of which acquires comprehensive knowledge in several areas of mechanical engineering that overlap into other industries. The structure of the study programme is given by a balanced combination of technical and natural science subjects focused mainly on design, construction, mechanics, engineering materials, production technologies and production process management, which provides the graduate with a wide range of opportunities in the field. In addition to theoretical knowledge, graduates also gain important practical experience in the field of 3D modelling, computer simulations and expert measurements, which are crucial for performing highly specialized activities typical of R&D.

Graduates
I can say that studying at the faculty provided me with a good basis for further development and employment. Additionally, I am very glad that students have the opportunity to participate in various motivational programmes and receive scholarships, which helped me to further develop in practice, as well as awards that improved my chances when looking for a job.

Upon successful completion of the Mechanical Engineering study programme, the graduates gain a broad focus in mechanical engineering. After the study, it is therefore possible to choose from several employment options, and not just one specific one, as would be the case when graduating another study programme.
