Undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering


The study cycle is particularly aimed at meeting the growing demands and expectations of modern industries, towards an increase in competitiveness and productivity, by developing knowledge in the areas of product design and development, computer-aided technologies, project of moulds and plastic parts, mechanical project, materials, manufacturing processes, electromechanical technologies, as well as basic management skills. Graduate students are intended to have solid base-knowledge, coupled with a significant set of practical skills, in order to integrate industries as a significant added value. The formation range is broad, allowing the graduate student to work on several industrial sectors, such as manufacturing industries, and also non industrial – research centres, technological centres, among others.
