(discipline: Mechanical Engineering)
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics became a separate AGH UST unit in 1952 as a consequence of the division of the Faculty of Electromechanics; initially, its name was the Faculty of Mechanization of Mining and Metallurgy. The present name was given in 1952. At the moment, the faculty employs 300 staff, including 230 university teachers, and educates about 4,000 students.
For many years, the faculty has been dealing mainly with mechanics, machinery construction and operation, automatics and robotics. In the recent years, the number of patents and implementation agreements has been significant.
The faculty collaborates closely with the extractive and metallurgical industries together with their technical base, and a considerable number of energy and heat energy plants. In particular, collaboration with the following companies is very close: KGHM Polska Miedź, Skanska, Siemens, PZL Mielec – Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, IOS Krakow, Valeo, ABB, Kirchhoff, MAN, Mitsubishi Electric, PIMOT Warsaw, and Delphi Automotive Systems. Thanks to our highly- -qualified staff, the faculty can collaborate with worldwide recognized educational centres in the European Union, Latin America, and the USA.
Faculty students obtain grants and can study in Germany, France, and Great Britain, which results in obtaining a double diploma – one of AGH UST, and one of a foreign university. A wide scope of studies enables faculty graduates to work in any industrial branch in Poland, and their spectacular careers are often the best proof of their qualifications.
The faculty is changing constantly, following the needs of the transforming economy, and the expectations of candidates. The faculty’s latest offer is Mechatronics. It is a new, interdisciplinary field of study which combines mechanics, electronics, and computer science. Mechatronics deals with products which require a very high functional and technological integration of their mechanical, electromagnetic and electronic parts. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics also offers studies in the discipline of Acoustic and Sound Engineering, and in the discipline of Mechanical and Materials Engineering.
