Characteristics of the branch

Bachelor’s study programme “Mechanical Engineering” focuses on preparation of students for a higher (master’s) level of university study. It is intended especially for those applicants with completed Bachelor’s degree who want to continue in a follow-up master’s study programme and obtain the Master’s degree (Ing.) as soon as possible.

  • The branch provides students with deep knowledge in the area of engineering sciences.
  • Students may specialise their studies during the third year selecting some optional courses focused especially on construction, designing and engineering technology.
  • In the third year of study students work on their bachelor theses in cooperation with the selected institute at the faculty.
  • The graduates may continue their studies in the master’s study programme at this institute or in any master’s study programme provided by the faculty.

Learning outcomes and competences

The bachelor’s study programme “Mechanical Engineering” is intended as the most effective way to prepare students for the study in a follow-up master’s study programme. The graduates will have a wide professional basis enabling them to continue in some branch in a two-year follow-up master’s study programme specialised in mechanical engineering.

  • The graduates may choose any branch within a two-year follow-up master’s study programme (today approximately 20 branches).
  • Bachelor’s study graduates may immediately start their professional career; they may work as e.g. technicians in development, constructional, and technological institutes or enterprises, manufacturing plants, services and trade.

Entry requirements

Completed secondary-school education and successfully passed entrance examination (if not remitted by the dean).

Advanced courses

  • The graduates may continue their studies in a two-year follow-up master’s study programme at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, at request and usually without entrance examinations.
  • They may choose any branch within a two-year follow-up master’s study programme at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Today they can choose from approximately 20 branches.
  • Graduates may also continue their studies in any follow-up master’s study programme provided by other technical university.

Special offer

  • The branch “Mechanical Engineering” provides students with wide general technical knowledge in the area of engineering. This general orientation may be an advantage for the students, because they are not focused on one field only. This will ensure better career prospects in the competitive labour market. Some prospective employers require technicians to have general education, while the specialized training will be provided in the given enterprise.
  • The graduates may benefit from the wide and theoretical basis in the field in case of further study at different university in the Czech Republic or abroad.
  • As another advantage of the general bachelor’s study programme “Mechanical Engineering” can be regarded the fact that the students can leave their options open with respect to the selection of the field of the master’s study. Most students leaving the secondary schools are not well familiarised with all possible fields in the area of engineering. They usually need to acquire particular experience to be able to choose the field of master’s study.
