Undergraduate in Engenharia Mecânica

  "The mechanical engineer is the most versatile of all engineers"

 

Mechanical engineering is one of the most requested Engineering by the labor market. Its extended training gives it great versatility allowing a quick and easy adaptation to different jobs.


Classes take place during the day, however, whenever possible, it is attempted that the majority of classes take place after work to accommodate student-worker students. It should be noted that students can choose to attend the course in full or partial.

 

 

Objectives

Provide a solid scientific, technological and social learning, supported by a programme and courses that includes contact with real situations and laboratories experiences. This cycle of studies is based on the development of a diverse set of skills and competencies that permits excellent career opportunities and pursue postgraduate studies.

The study program is made up of 6 semesters. The first four semesters are common to all students. The last two semesters include several optional course units that allow the students to select a specific training profile. They can choose advanced training courses in Project and Mechanical Production, Energy and Fluid Technologies as well as such areas as Automation and Control & Robotics (tuition of these two courses depend on the number of students enrolled).
