Learning Outcomes

Mechanical engineering contains a wide field of technologies, which includes all machines and devices intended for mechanical work. In this course there will be just the basics of mechanical engineering, so that energy or environmental engineers will have a critical general know-how related to mechanical engineering. Energy or environmental engineers will not design machines or equipment, but they will order and utilize various mechanical engineering solutions on their work duties.

Student's Workload

135 h including appr. 45 h of scheduled contact teaching and appr. 90 h of independent study.


Basic information and general properties about metals, material testing, general basic information related to production and manufacturing technology, as well as coating and coating methods, which energy and environmental engineering engineers will need in their work duties.

Recommended or Required Reading and Other Learning Resources/Tools

The course does not have course books. The study material is constantly updated. The course material will be given in lectures and on Moodle

Mode of Delivery / Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods
