If you choose to study in the fields of Applied Mechanics and Mechatronics, your career will combine the most interesting and important elements of mechanical, electronic and information engineering into a highly skilled and professional opportunity.
If you think that studying mechanical engineering is just about gears and mechanisms, think again!
Today Applied Mechanics and Mechatronics utilizes state of the art software mechanics, intelligent and advanced material solutions, sophisticated sensor systems, innovative application of neuron networks, advanced automation and many more interesting and exciting opportunities which are very valuable in the commercial and industrial sectors.
If you find machines fascinating, and are interested in the cutting edge of technology, then Applied Mechanics and Mechatronics is the way for you!
This study programme is focused on training mechanical engineers specialised in Automobiles and Mobile Working Machines.
Along with core mechanical engineering skills, such as machine design and construction, advanced materials, mechanics, manufacturing technology, programming and knowledge of technical physics and mathematics, graduates of this study programme are profiled as overall specialists in the field of construction and testing of cars.
Key courses are:
  • Automotive Technology
  • Combustion Engines,
  • CAx,
  • Noise and Vibration,
  • Advanced Construction Technology,
  • Computer Simulations etc.

Experience in relevant production companies and useful complementary subjects such as foreign languages, physical education and sport, and modern management complete this very popular study programme.

The standard length course is three years (6 semesters).

The course operates on a winter and summer semester system.

Each semester last 12 weeks followed by a six week examination period.

Based on the European Community Courses Credit Transfer System (ECTS) the total for each year of study corresponds to 60 credits.

Each BSc program consists of relatively fixed curricula which are taken during specific semesters and years.

The program is composed of obligatory and elective subjects.

The portion of electives is highest in the final year of study.

The minimum requirement for a Bachelor of Science degree is to gain 180 credits

Graduates of this programme have a thorough knowledge of mechanical engineering and its application in the automotive industry.
Slovakia is a major automobile producer with a 150- year tradition of mechanical engineering, enabling us to base the course content on the proven needs of this industry.
The focus of the course is the acquisition of in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing process in the automotive industry.
Areas covered include production technologies, quality management (TQM), management and organization of production, logistics, montage and maintenance, life cycle management and recycling.
Also studied are specialized areas such as noise testing, statistical methods and social aspects of the automotive industry.
The second part is focused on a product itself (a vehicle) - CAD, applied car mechanics and elasticity, mechanical and hydraulic parts, construction materials.
Professional experience in the industry is part of the study.
Graduates of this study programme are much sought-after, not only in the job market of the automotive industry but also in many other engineering production fields.
