The course in brief


The course of study provides curricular training aimed at solving problems characteristic of entry-level mechanical engineering. The fundamentals for the design, production and operation of machinery and industrial plant engineering are acquired.

During the basic courses of the first year, didactic tutoring with experienced personnel is implemented, while in the following years the course offers paths geared toward the training of engineers with high basic preparation, capable of dealing with industrial problems or pursuing careers in any master's degree.

Learning by doing

The teaching is predominantly face-to-face, because the student must acquire the theoretical foundations to support the professionalizing disciplines. The training also makes use of interaction with the manufacturing realities of the engineering and energy sectors through visits, exercises and opportunities for internships in companies.

Professional outlets

The main professional outlets of the graduate in mechanical engineering are:

  • mechanical and electromechanical industries
  • manufacturing enterprises for production
  • industries and public and private entities in the field of energy production and conversion
  • plant engineering enterprises
  • Environmental refrigeration and air conditioning enterprises
  • industries for automation, robotics and mechatronics
  • engineering companies

The bachelor's degree allows registration as an engineer.

What you will learn

The course of study offers pathways geared toward the training of mechanical engineers with high basic preparation, capable of systematically addressing first-level problems in the characteristic areas of mechanical engineering. In addition, the educational pathway of this degree offers an ideal preparation for further study towards master's degrees.

In the first year priority is given to mathematical, physicochemical, and computer science foundations, but already there is provision for the inclusion of disciplines from the area of engineering proper, such as information technology, technical drawing, and materials.

In the second year foundational elements are acquired in the areas of: fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, mechanical technology, applied machine mechanics, machine building, fluid machinery, energy systems, technical physics (energy and heat transfer), mechanical systems, electrical engineering and electronics.

In the third year the student deepens his skills in such subjects as mechanical systems, fluid machines, technical drawing, machine construction, dynamics and control of mechanical systems, measurement and instrumentation, and elements of economics for industrial engineering. The presence of two electives, of an applied nature, allows for increased flexibility of the course.
