The graduate knows how to achieve content in the field of transport and logistics in action in this field

Graduates after completing the 1st degree of Mechatronic Engineering studies have knowledge of the design and operation of mechatronic systems used in production processes and computer systems in mechatronics. The proposed scopes of the content of major subjects were selected in such a way that the graduate would acquire knowledge, skills and competences that can be directly used in engineering activities of the contemporary labor market and allow him to work in production positions equipped with mechatronic systems in many industries, including the food sector. The graduate has knowledge in the field of construction, principles of operation, design, calculation and selection of power supply, executive and control elements, dynamics modeling, digital simulation, motion visualization and control with the use of computer aided, and is also able to use modern computational tools and apply computer techniques in technology. Has the ability to use modern devices (PLC programmable controllers, controllers based on artificial intelligence, real-time control systems.

Graduates of the fields of study at the Faculty know a foreign language at the B2 level and have the ability to use a specialist language in the field of study and are prepared for the concept of second-cycle studies.

Second-cycle studies - Masters

A graduate of Management and Production Engineering has in-depth knowledge of selected areas taught at the 1st degree studies. He is prepared to perform duties related to the improvement of processes and the elimination of waste. The acquired qualifications enable the organization and implementation of processes, striving to improve them and improve the company's performance. The graduate knows the non-technical conditions of the company's operations, taking into account the knowledge of organizational culture, building effective teams of employees, as well as problem solving methods. Master's studies allow you to achieve managerial qualifications at various levels of management in production and service companies.

A graduate of Renewable Energy Sources and Waste Management has in-depth knowledge of technical engineering tasks and environmental shaping, design engineering tasks related to devices, installations and facilities for obtaining energy from renewable sources, and in the field of waste management. Has advanced economic and legal knowledge necessary to understand the non-technical determinants of engineering activities, including extended knowledge of the functioning and development of rural areas.

A graduate of Transport and Logistics has in-depth knowledge of planning, organizing and implementing logistics activities. They obtain qualifications in the field of transport management and control with the use of modern methods, devices and information technologies. Graduates have the ability to understand social, economic, legal and other non-technical determinants of engineering activity. They demonstrate the ability to work in a team.
