The course in brief


The mechanical engineer: his preparation is among the most solid, comprehensive, versatile and appreciated by the working world. His skills cover not only the design and production of machines, plants, complex systems, consumer goods and services, but also extend to organizational and economic-managerial aspects and the most advanced applications in the fields of robotics, mechatronics, automation, and energy.

Learning by doing

The course combines traditional lectures with:

  • laboratory activities
  • .
  • development of projects proposed by faculty
  • professionalizing curricular internship activities at affiliated companies in the area.

Professional outlets

Almost all bachelor's and master's degree graduates in mechanical engineering find employment within 12 months of graduation.

In addition to the opportunity to enter the workforce directly, graduates have access to numerous master's degrees, including:

  • Mechanical engineering - design and production
  • Mechanical Engineering - Energy and Aeronautics
  • Robotics Engineering.

What you will learn

basic science education

Use mathematical, physical, chemical, and computer tools to solve engineering problems

mechanical design

Analyze and design mechanical systems in relation to functional and constructive aspects

Thermal, energy, fluid dynamic and environmental systems

Analyze and design thermodynamic cycles, systems for heat transfer and energy recovery; model energy processes, fluid machines, internal combustion engines

industrial plants and mechanical technology

Understand the operation of industrial and production systems, knowing their techno-economic aspects and those related to Industry 4.0

control and measurement

Configure and analyze servosystems for mechatronic applications, equipped with sensors and control systems

systems for automation and mechatronics

integrate hardware and software components with mechanical and servo systems in automation and mechatronics applications


The bachelor's degree program in mechanical engineering is geared toward training engineers with a strong>solid physical-mathematical background, which allows for placement in wide-ranging work realities, with quick time to adapt to business realities.

In the first year priority is given to mathematical, physicochemical, and computer science foundations, but disciplines from the proper engineering area are already included: computer technologies, technical drawing, materials.

In the second year, in addition to consolidating basic knowledge, foundational elements are acquired in the areas: applied machine mechanics, mechanical technology, machine building, energy systems, technical physics, mechanical systems, electrical engineering and electronics.

In the third year content is included in curriculum-specific mechanical engineering related fields: hardware and software systems for automation, mechatronics, electrical drives, 3D CAD design.

The final exam offers the possibility of laboratory activities or company internships, during which you will be able to apply the knowledge and skills acquired and develop additional operational skills, which complete the preparation.
