The institute provides the core part of the most successful study programme of applied mechanics and mechatronics at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. It is one of those institutes without which the faculty could not be called mechanical engineering, because mechanical engineering is actually the application of mechanics.
The study focuses on technically advanced machines and equipment that combine the demanding elements of mechanics, electronics and computer science. Graduates will be employed in the operation of measuring, control, robotic and mechatronic systems, or in the design of new products that have a certain kind of intelligence, such as ABS systems, EDS, airbags in cars, various systems in consumer technology, etc.
Accredited study programme of bachelor and engineering studies
Applied Mechanics - The graduate's profile is formed by theoretical knowledge of solid mechanics, continuum mechanics, thermomechanics and hydraulics. The focus of the graduate is chosen so that he/she has suitable adaptability for a wide variety of problems of theoretical and applied nature in engineering. The graduate is proficient in the analysis of machine dynamics, synthesis and design of mechanisms and robots, methodology of optimal sizing of machine components, calculation of lifetime and reliability of machines, theory of thermal calculations and basics of mechatronics. The student is familiar with the methods and means of engineering experimentation and research in the field of applied mechanics.
Mechatronics - This interdisciplinary field of study prepares professionals focused on working in the interdisciplinary fields of mechanical engineering, electronics, and computer science. Graduates are able to design, construct and engineer assemblies, machines, machinery and systems that are characterized by high functional and handling accuracy. An integral part of these are control subsystems with the application of elements of artificial intelligence, which represent systems with information interaction. Graduates are proficient in modern computer methods of modelling, simulation as well as new non-traditional methods of synthesis. The student will find application in scientific research, development and design organizations in solving the problems of design and development of products that have varying degrees of intelligence for different branches of industry.
