-- COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES
It has sufficient groundwork in mathematics, science and engineering related to its branches; theoretical and practical knowledge in these areas is used for Mechanical Engineering solutions.
It investigates, defines, formulates and solves problems in the field of Mechanical Engineering and accordingly chooses appropriate analytical and modeling techniques for this purpose.
Analyze a system, system component or process and design it under realistic constraints to meet the requirements; it implements modern design methods in this direction.
Selects and uses the modern techniques and tools necessary for engineering applications; and at least one computer software (Advanced European Computer Use License).
Design experiments, conduct experiments, collect data, analyze and interpret the results.
One of the aims is to access to information and research resources, use databases and other sources of information.
It works effectively and takes responsibility individually and in multidisciplinary teams
It is aware of the necessity of life-long learning; follows developments in science and technology, and constantly innovates itself.
Project management, workplace practices, employees' health, environmental and occupational safety awareness; is aware of the legal consequences of engineering applications.
