The aim of the study programme is to provide in-debt theoretical knowledge, develop research skills and prepare high-level specialists in the sectors of engineering production and sciences of machines, as well as prepare students for further doctor level studies.


The tasks of the study programme:
- to provide in-debt knowledge in the fundamental study courses, as well as in special study courses of production engineering and manufacturing engineering;
- to acquaint students with research work skills and methods;
- to teach students skills to use data processing and analyses methods;
- to develop students’ abilities to substantiate, draw up and present the research work.


After studies, graduates can continue studies in the doctoral programmes or work in companies as leading specialists, for example, in companies engaged in computerized designing, production, adjustment, servicing, and repair of products or mechanical engineering and metal constructions, mechanical equipment, and technical devices, products.


After graduating from the academic master's study programme “Production Engineering” (45521), students are offered to continue studies in the doctoral study programme “Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics” (51526).
