Original title in Czech: Výrobní systémyFSIAbbreviation: M-VSYAcad. year: 2020/2021

Programme: Production Systems

Length of Study: 2 years

Accredited from: 1.9.2009Accredited until: 31.5.2023


Branch „Production Systems (Double Degree) is guaranteed by the Institute of Production Machines, Systems and Robotics (ÚVSSR), Brno University of Technology and the Institute of Production Machines and Production Systems (IWP) at TU Chemnitz (Germany). Both partners, thanks to many years of close cooperation, have common background in research and teaching, which enables them to offer to students a wider spectrum of courses within the field of mechanical engineering production. This also allows for a wider graduate´s profile:

IWP provides the courses on properties of production machines, development of structures of machinery, forming technology and virtual reality;
ÚVSSR teaches construction of production machines, production systems and robotics

Key learning outcomes

The branch „Production Systems“ covers the problematics of design, development, construction, control, operation, retrofitting and diagnostics of machine tools and forming machines, industrial robots and manipulators and production systems made up of these machines. The objective is to provide the students with qualification needed for development, construction, control and diagnostics of production machines and industrial robots with application of the latest methods used in the specific field. Furthermore, to prepare them for design, installation and operation of various robotic workplaces and production systems. The concept of this study programme allows the students to obtain sufficient competences for cooperation in international development, design and construction teams.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

successful graduates of the branch find interesting positions as planners, designers, development specialists, production engineers, staff of specialized testing rooms, dealers in companies engaged in development, production and sale of production machines, design and operation of production systems, but also as managers of production control in engineering or similar companies, that is, in companies dealing with development, production and sale of production machines, design and operation of production systems. Mastering a foreign language, meeting a different culture, high-quality theoretical education and broad universal basis of this application-focused branch of study ensure high adaptability of the graduates to all eventual requirements of their future professional career.
Institute of Production Machines, Systems and Robotics provides Doctoral study in the branch Design and Process Engineering, which offers the students a perspective for future scientific work. Successful graduation leads to the award of the Ph.D. title.
