Mechanics and Machine Design (in English and in Polish)

Automotive and Construction Machinery Engineering. The education in this field of study enables to gain comprehensive engineering knowledge of general machine design, as well as the expertise, concerning the design, production, safety, control and exploitation of "the faculty objects of interest", i.e. vehicles (cars, tractors, railway vehicles) and construction machinery (building and road machines, cranes, conveyors, etc.).

The graduate of the Mechanics and Machine Design field of study possesses extensive general knowledge connected with basic subjects and specialist knowledge of machinery and vehicle construction. The graduate is also able to use modern tools of computer-aided design, production and exploitation process, which are applied in contemporary design offices.

This results in the interdisciplinary, systemic approach to solving technical problems as well as in taking other challenges in their work, including those related to intensive development of science and technology.

The Mechanics and Machine Design field of studies consists of the first-cycle studies (undergraduate) for Engineer’s degree, and the second-cycle studies (postgraduate) for Master’s degree, available as a full-time and a part-time study modes.

For the second-cycle (MSc) studies, the Mechanics and Machine Design field of study is available both in Polish and in English. The latter is provided in the Double Degree System in cooperation with the Technical University Berlin.

 

The Course elements library for the first-cycle studies in Polish is available here.

The Course elements library for the second-cycle studies in English is available here.
