About the program: Graduates of this program 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 program are much sought-after, not only in the job market of the automotive industry but also in many other engineering production fields. Experiences in relevant production companies and useful complementary subjects such as foreign languages, physical education and sport, and modern management complete this very popular study program.
