The Slovak economy benefits from a strong automotive industry sector which means that placements in industry are many and varied, and our students are in great demand by the major manufacturers and their component suppliers.
Study at FME STU
Study at STU is based on the 3 degree system harmonised with the Bologna declaration of ministers of EU countries. Faculty of Mechanical Engineering offers the following full-time study programmes in English language:
1. Bachelor Study
- Bachelor degree study in the English programmes at FME STU consists of 3 years of full-time study.
- Graduates are awarded Bachelor title – Bc.
Range of tuition fee for sef-payers: 4000 EUR for winter and summer semester of the academic year in study programme:
Applied Mechanics and MechatronicsIf you choose to study in the fields of Applied Mechanics and Mechatronics, your career will combine the most interesting and important elements of mechanical, electronic and information engineering into a highly skilled and professional opportunity. If you think that studying mechanical engineering is just about gears and mechanisms, please consider it again: today applied mechanics and mechatronics utilizes state of the art software mechanics, intelligent and advanced material solutions, sophisticated sensor systems, innovative application of neuron networks, advanced automation and many more interesting and exciting opportunities which are very valuable in the commercial and industrial sectors. If you find machines fascinating, and are interested in the cutting edge of technology, then this is the right study programme for you.
2. Master degree
- Master degree study consists of 2 years of study.
- Graduates are awarded a Master title – Msc.
- Range of tuition fee for self payers : 4000 EUR for winter and summer semester of the academic year in study programmes:
Applied Mechanics and MechatronicsThe graduate profile creates theoretical knowledge of rigid body mechanics, continuum mechanics, thermomechanics and hydraulics. The focus of the graduate is chosen so that it has suitable adaptabi- lity for various problems of theoretical and application character in engineering. Graduates master the analysis of structure dynamics, the synthesis and design of mechanisms and robots, the methodology of optimal dimensioning of machine parts, calculation of machine life and reliability, the theory of thermal calculations and the basics of mechatronics. He knows methods and means of engineering experiment and research in the field of applied mechanics.
Production Systems and Quality Management with study branch: Automotive ProductionGraduates of this programme have a thorough knowledge of mechanical engineering and its application in the automotive industry. Slovakia is a major automobile poducer with a 150-year tradition of mechanical engineering, enabling us to base the course content on the proven needs of this industry. The focus of the course is the asquisition of in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing process in the automotive industry. Areas covered include production technologies, quality management (TQM), management and organization of production, logistics, montage and maintenance, life cycle management and recycling. Also studied are specialized areas such as noise, testing, statistical methods and social aspects of the automotive industry. The second part is focused on a product itself (a vehicle) – CAD applied car mechanics and elasticity, mechanical and hydraulic parts, construction materials. Professional experience in the industry is part of the study. Graduates of this study programme are much sought-after, not only in the job market of the automotive industry but also in many other engineering production fields.
