Profile of the Branch
Mechanical engineering technology is the application of physical principles and current technological developments to the creation of useful reality for machine and operation design. Technology in this sense includes technical methods, skills, processes, techniques, tools and raw materials and computer technology. Through the application of computer-aided manufacturing, the models may also be used directly by software to create "instructions" for the manufacture of objects represented by the models, through computer numerically-controlled machining or other automated processes, without the need for intermediate drawings. Fundamental subjects of mechanical engineering technology include: Mathematics, Elasticity and Plasticity, Theories of Technological Processes, Welding, Metal Forming and Machining, Material Sciences, Special Technologies of Manufacturing and Metal Treatment (Machining, Welding, Surface Treatment, Metal Forming), Manufacuring Tools, Nanomotarials – Processes, and Surface Systems, Computer Methods of Manufacturing Processes and Control, Quality Control and Metrology, Checking and Diagnostic Systems, Designing of Production Processes and Production Systems, Economics and Enterprise Operation Management and Financial Systems. Many next suplementary objects are educated.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Students obtain a broad physical-technological foundation in especially the area of new engineering technology, its equipment and automation, primarily in the area of forming, welding, machining and assembly, surface engineering, management and organization and designing engineering production. The graduate obtains integrated survey of the experimental and numerical research methods in field of production processes and technologies. Students demonstrate acquired level by processing and defence of graduation theses.
Graduate of the branch Mechanical Engineering technology obtains essential theoretical and practical knowledges and field experiences to independent scientific activity in several specialisations of this branch: forming, welding, cutting, assembly, surface engineering, management and organization and designing engineering production.
General competencies:
Study in this branch educates specialists by deepening and widening theoretical and practical knowledge of the basic production technology used in engineering. Student knowledge in the basic branch areas, among which are engineered materials and their surface treatment, the production technology of engineering parts and their assembly, is further deepened by a study of physical metallurgy and the limiting states of materials, production machines and equipment, including numerically controlled, automated and flexible production systems, their design and control. An important item is the control and management of quality and organization and the economic evaluation of production.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Mechanical Engineering Technology branch prepares students for a broad range of technical positions throughout manufacturing enterprises that require people with strong mechanically oriented backgrounds. - technicians and technologists which plan the production process and design or modify a product for a specific application, - Specialists which work with manufacturing and machinery, - industrial leaders who manage people, machines, and production resources. Branch graduates can find employment in the production operations of engineering and in other industrial branches, in the sectional preparation and organization of production, in the design and construction of technological equipment, instruments and preparations, in the design and construction of technological operations and in maintenance sections.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
