Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering

Original title in Czech: Základy strojního inženýrstvíFSIAbbreviation: B-STIAcad. year: 2017/2018Specialisation: -

Programme: Engineering

Length of Study: 3 years

Accredited from: 1.9.2003Accredited until: 31.8.2022

Profile of the branch

The bachelor’s study programme “Mechanical Engineering” is intended as the most effective way to prepare students for the study in a follow-up master’s study programme. The graduates will have a wide professional basis enabling them to continue in some branch in a two-year follow-up master’s study programme specialised in mechanical engineering.

  • The graduates may choose any branch within a two-year follow-up master’s study programme (today approximately 20 branches).

  • Bachelor’s study graduates may immediately start their professional career; they may work as e.g. technicians in development, constructional, and technological institutes or enterprises, manufacturing plants, services and trade.

Key learning outcomes

Graduates will have gained fundamental engineering knowledge:

  • in general theoretical subjects (mathematics, geometry, physics, chemistry, etc.)
  • in subjects focusing on mechanical engineering (mechanics of rigid and deformable bodies , materials science, thermomechanics, hydromechanics, etc.)
  • in the area of mechanical engineering technologies (manufacturing, machining, etc.).
Such level of knowledge will enable the graduates its confident practical applications and to develop it further within design and applied engineering branches in the follow-up Master’s study.
Bachelor’s study also involves mastering a foreign language at an intermediate level.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

  • The graduates may continue their studies in a two-year follow-up master's study programme at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, at request and usually without entrance examinations.
  • They may choose any branch within a two-year follow-up master's study programme at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Today they can choose from approximately 20 branches.
  • Graduates may also continue their studies in any follow-up master's study programme provided by other technical university.
