|In all programs, highly qualified engineers and researchers are trained through a project- and laboratory-based education. The mission of the undergraduate curriculum is to prepare its graduates to meet the challanges associated with their particular career paths, and to adapt to the rapidly changing technologies. The curriculum includes a variety of courses covering subjects in the Thermal and Fluid Sciences, Materials Sciences, Design and Production, Theory of Machines and Control Systems, as well as intensive design and laboratory works. |
In addition to teaching, the Department’s faculty is actively involved in research sponsored by the public and private sectors. The primary research areas of the department include: Mechatronics, Robotics, Engineering Mechanics, Renewable Energy Resources (geothermal and wind), Thermal-Fluid sciences, and Material Technologies.
There are ongoing master’s and PhD theses in these areas and the necessary laboratory infrastructure is rapidly improving. It is one of the aims of the department to train engineers in areas such as “robotics and automation technologies”, “control”, “mechatronics”, “teleoperations and haptic devices”, “turbomachines”, “renewable energy technologies”, “material technologies”, “composites-biomaterials”, “nanomaterials”, “mechanical behaviour of solids”, “mechanisms and machine dynamics”, “artificial intelligence”, “hygienic climatisation and ventilation systems”, “heat pumps”, “wind energy” and “electronic cooling”. The aforementioned areas are highly significant in terms of our country’s technological development, value-added production and economy. Our department is an invaluable resource to meet the academic personnel demand in these related areas.
