The 2nd level postgraduate master's study programme of Mechanical Engineering is aimed to educate specialist-engineers with theoretical-scientific and special practical skills to work on most demanding engineering problems in companies, where the engineers are able to solve difficult and complex problems based on theoretical and practical solutions, procedures and methods. The programme is intended to provide students with an advanced knowledge and understanding of the `state-of-the-art´ in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering, necessary for research and development. It is intended to provide students with deep scientific knowledge of mechanical engineering, oriented towards practical solutions. The students will learn how to effectively apply modern engineering tools to solve most demanding mechanical engineering problems. Such concept of the postgraduate master's study programme is in accordance with common European orientation in higher education.
The postgraduate master's study programme of Mechanical Engineering is intended to train the students to be analytical thinkers who will successfully integrate and synthesize the theory and new knowledge to be able to work also in research and development institutes in companies and in research institutions. They will be able to accept the leadership responsibilities and transfer the results of scientific work to practical problems. The broad mechanical engineering orientation of the study programme will generate creative and innovative potential of students. The contemporary based study programme is adapted to reflect extensive scientific research activity of academic staff at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
This provides some flexibility for each student to choose courses that create a degree that best fits education and career goals for the student, enhanced job performance and the requirements for the research.
The M.Sc. qualified engineers with broad analytical and scientific knowledge will find employment in almost all branches of industry, R&D institutes, independent companies, and design departments, as project engineers, experts, consultants, managers and research team members.
Faculty of mechanical engineering has established tutorial and supervising work for students. Students obtain professor - tutor, who advises students during his study. Each study year has its own supervisor, as well.
Student complete the 2nd study level study programme of Mechanical Engineering when he/she completes study courses and collects 120 ECTS credit points by passing all exams from courses as prescribed by the study programme and defends the Master thesis in front of the examination board. According to Slovenian law the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering awards the following degree to the students who completed the 2nd level study programme of Mechanical Engineering: Master in Mechanical Engineering or short MA in Mech. Eng.
The study programme has been accredited by the Slovene National Agency of Quality Assurance.
Master study programme of Mechanical Engineering takes two years (4 semesters/120 ECTS) to complete. The structure of the study programme is the following:· 1st Semester: Common scientific and technological basic courses,· 2nd Semester: Common technological courses,· 3rd Semester: Compulsory courses from selected study field,· 4th Semester: Elective courses and Master Thesis.
The 1st study year (first two semesters) is the same for all students and contains 11 compulsory courses in the amount of 60 ECTS including: Selected Topics in Mathematics, Selected Topics in Mechanics, Advanced Engineering Materials, Advanced Engineering Materials, Methodology of Experimental Work, Numerical Modelling and Computer Simulations, Energy and Environment, HVAC, Systematic Mechanical Designing, Virtual Engineering Systems, Advanced Technological Systems, Production Systems.
In the second study year the students can select from one of four offered study fields: Energy, Process and Environmental Engineering; Engineering Design; Manufacturing Technologies and Systems; and Engineering Computer Modelling.
Study programme offers also 10 general selective courses.
In the spring semester of second study year (4th semester) the students have to prepare and defend the Master Thesis (18 ECTS). The Master Thesis work comprises scientific and research work on a certain chosen engineering problem. The students have to prepare the Master Thesis and publicly present and defend it in front of an examination board. The Master Thesis work significantly contributes to the final student MA classification.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
The amount of the tuition fee is set by the relevant educational institution and is the same as the tuition fee for art-time programmes for Slovene citizens. The tuition for the current academic year must be paid upon enrolment.
The list of tuition fees is available at: www.um.si/studij/financiranje/Strani/default.aspx
Foreign citizens residing in the Republic of Slovenia who are taxable persons in the RS (or their parents/guardians), EU citizens and citizens of countries with which the RS has concluded bilateral agreements are exempted from paying the tuition fee for full-timepostgraduate programmes.
