Mechanical Engineering Design
Original title in Czech: Konstrukční inženýrstvíFSIAbbreviation: M-KSIAcad. year: 2018/2019
Programme: Mechanical Engineering
Length of Study: 2 years
Accredited from: 1.9.2004Accredited until: 31.8.2022
The main aim is to provide students with principles of machine design and design methods, which are vital for development of new products and machines in the wide range of fields of mechanical engineering. The purpose is not just to acquire theoretical knowledge, but to master application of engineering approach and teamwork. It is based on project oriented learning, which leads students to apply theoretical knowledge in practice. The scheme of the semester is following:
- 1st to 7th week - block courses. Students acquire knowledge of project management, engineering analysis, computer-aided design, condition monitoring, machine and process control, tribology, prototype design and it's testing.
- 7th to 13th week – project oriented learning. Students are working in teams on assigned projects.
- Examination period – defence of the projects.
Study plan and the courses reflect new and fast developing technologies and interdisciplinary disciplines such as:
- 3D digitization and reverse engineering,
- engineering analyses and simulations,
- additive technologies for production of metal and plastic prototypes,
- emerging sciences and technologies, machine and process control.
Key learning outcomes
Students obtain complex knowledge needed for design of machine parts and units. When they graduate, they are able to create and use 3D digital data for design, simulation and production of final products. They are able to apply advanced approaches to reverse engineering and condition monitoring in the process of machine parts innovation. Project-oriented teaching gives them experience with multidisciplinary problems including experimental verification and validation of outcomes.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples
Graduates can work as mechanical engineers and designers, project managers, development specialist, researchers and engineering businessmen. Those, who are interested in scientific research or deepening their education, can continue in doctoral study programme.
