Branch Details

Engineering Mechanics and Biomechanics

FSIAbbreviation: M-IMBAcad. year: 2020/2021

Programme: Applied Sciences in Engineering

Length of Study: 2 years

Accredited from: 1.9.2003Accredited until: 31.12.2024

Profile

The goal of the course is to capture latest computational and experimental methods used in the field of the mechanics of solids, and to use them for the reliability and service life assessments of machine structures. In the area of computational mechanics, students gain a detailed knowledge of theory and practice of the FEM, applied to static and dynamic strength analysis, including nonlinear, buckling and transient problems. In the area of experimental mechanics, students gain personal experience in laboratories, equipped by reputable producers of measurement technology that have their commercial representation at the institute.
Graduates from the study branch Engineering Mechanics keep a high professional adaptability, which gives them a good prospect of getting a job in many branches of economy. This can be documented by our graduates in head positions of design departments of large companies or sales representatives of foreign commercial firms. There is also the possibility to continue studies in the subsequent PhD program Engineering Mechanics with a prospect to scientific or academic career.
