About the course

Contemporary mechanical engineering is a highly important manufacturing sector, which designs and produces off-the-shelf means of production, all kinds of machines, equipment, instruments and commodities. The machinery- and tool-making industry actually dates to the Stone Age (when humans needed the tools to process their primitive work equipment), and it is currently a key production industry. Modern technologies and mechanical engineering equipment help make wonders: cut with water streams and thin metal wire, synthesize products of unimaginable shapes out of metal and plastic powders, or process different materials with a laser and plasmajet. Even though automated production is becoming more and more common, the human's role in designing and creating machinery is still at the forefront. This course allows the participants to become familiar with cutting-edge technologies in innovative mechanical engineering, develop the ability to collect, analyze and process the information required to implement innovative technological processes.
