The Department of Engineering Mechanics and Construction – Technical Expertise

 

Conforming to modern standards, the mission of the Department is to fundamentally train bachelors, masters and doctoral students in compliance with the educational coursefor the following faculties: construction, transport, energy, agro-engineering and informatics.

The development of the department is directly related to its competitive and varied training courses, which are conducted by highly experienced teachers and professors.

Theoretical mechanics, material durability, analytical mechanics, engineering mechanics, material mechanics, engineering stats, applied mechanics, construction mechanics, theory  of plasticity, sustainability of buildings – are those basic disciplines, the mastering and in depth studies of which are essential  practically for the specialties of the faculties listed above.

All lines of modern scientific research activity (theory of elasticity, theory of plasticity, fluid mechanics, sustainability of buildings), in which the staff of the department works make the Department competitive not only within the country but internationally.

The main objectives of the Department for the future academic years are to improve the quality of educational and scientific work, based upon the existing teaching staff.

The basic strategy and the tasks of the Department.
