About

The 2nd-cycle study programme in Mechanical Engineering leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Graduates are experts with an in-depth theoretical and methodological knowledge of solving complex problems in planning, managing and implementation of development, research and scientific  tasks in the broad field of mechanical engineering.

Overview

Upon enrolment, students choose one of the three options available: 

  • Power, Process and Environmental Engineering option: students gain advanced theoretical and applied knowledge necessary for analysis of power and mass transport processes, thermal and hydraulic machinery and devices. In particular, in the area of power engineering this includes study of different types  of machines and devices such as internal combustion engines, hydraulic machines, gas and steam turbines, steam boilers and HVAC systems. In the process engineering area the study focuses on unit operations characteristics,  especially mechanical and thermal diffusion process technology. The environmental engineering focuses on different environmental technologies for the primary emission reduction of harmful substances at its source, elimination of pollutants from gases, water and ground and management of industrial and  household waste. A special focus is on the application of modern computational tools (CFD) and transport phenomena for the advanced engineering analyses in power, process and environmental engineering.   
  • Engineering Design option: students gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge needed for modern design and analysis of structures and machines. They are trained to combine basic knowledge with modern procedures and design methods of mechanical elements, parts, assemblies, structures and machines. The study is designed to teach the  students how to work as a part of a design team on modern CAD equipment and how to effectively apply intelligent and expert systems in the design and analysis of structures and machines. The students are encouraged to develop and assess new concepts and practical  approaches that help shorten the design processes and thus contribute towards product cost reduction.   
  • Manufacturing Technologies and Systems option: study focuses on in-depth knowledge of production processes and production process planning depending on the manufacturing tool and machine choice optimisation in view of production cost reduction. Particular attention is devoted to advanced understanding and use of control measurements of manufacturing machines that enable proper estimation of the state of the machine and its production readiness. Computer aided technologies, production automatisation, robot technology and other automatic or semiautomatic systems, which fulfil the target functions of the production technologies, are studied in detail, as these technologies are the basis of the intelligent manufacturing system development. On the system level, the students expand their theoretical knowledge of operational research system analysis, deepen the knowledge of production management with its concepts of process simulation, scientific databases and results of experimental systems.
