The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was set up in 1949 as the Institute of Mechanics. In 1956, wth the Institute of Forestry Sciences, formed the Politechnical Institute of Brasov. Over the years very prestigious professors have contributed to the training process of our students.
To date, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering offers the students diplomas in the following fields: Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Transportation anf Traffic Engineering. In turn, the field of Mechanical Engineering is divided into the following specializations: Automotive Engineering (studied in romanian and english languages), Mechanical Engineering, Thermal Systems and Equipment, Precision Mechanics, Traffic and Transportation.
Our graduate program emphasizes not only depth in fundamental mechanical engineering disciplines, but also an interdisciplinary approach to understanding technologies where mechanical engineers can and should take a leading role. It is this combined emphasis on fundamentals, the ability to think and work outside of one's area of expertise and the ability to frame complex problems that best defines our graduate program.
Whether pursuing a Master’s degree or a Ph.D., our mechanical engineering graduate student participates in an intense program designed to hone professional skills and talents. Academic activity is balanced with hands-on research opportunities to create an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. It is this combined emphasis on fundamentals, the ability to think and work outside of one's area of expertise and the ability to frame complex problems that best defines our graduate program.
