The Department aims at fostering and promoting education, scientific research and knowledge relevant to the object of contemporary Mechanical Engineering, by focusing on energy-related issues, such as:

  • energy technology (production, conversion, transfer, storage and use of conventional and renewable energy sources)
  • management of energy resources in terms of institutional, organizational and financial effects at a local, national and international level
  • environmental impact of energy (local, national, global)
  • design and maintenance of engines and automatic control systems
  • testing and manufacture of products and systems
  • management of production systems and business administration

The specific Department objectives include the following:

  • qualifying students to acquire thorough grounding in the basic principles of Mechanical Engineering
  • offering in-depth training and skills to enable students to implement acquired knowledge
  • catering for outstanding education, which will allow students to meet industry and societal needs
  • developing high quality teaching and assessment methods in all taught subjects
  • encouraging students to make the most of their studies and ensure a successful future career
  • providing training in state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories
  • enhancing collaboration among students and encouraging self-study

After a five-year course, ME students will be able to:

  • apply acquired knowledge to engage in various Engineering projects
  • employ modern methods and techniques across the range of technologies over their core competence
  • use modern tools for problem solving in various areas, such as IT systems, computers, software packages etc.
  • achieve effective oral and written communication, and develop team spirit
  • design, undertake and run a wide variety of projects
  • monitor individual development of their core competence and continually improve their knowledge thereof
  • deliver expert service in industry and society

Apart from its educational function, the Department of Mechanical Engineering operates high-tech research laboratories, and participates in a number of national and international research projects, with publications in international journals and presentations at international or national conferences. It also places special emphasis on linking academic research to industrial production, research and development. Expert competence and skills in Mechanical Engineering are vital assets for careers in a wide range of fields, from industrial production and development to scientific research and academia.
