Twin Programme

Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing / Kaunas Fall

The fundamentals of design methods, tools applied and manufacturing principles of mechanical components are stressed in the module. The properties of engineering materials and their selection principles are revealed through the studies of the course „Materials Science and Engineering“. In the course „Mechanics of Materials“ students learn about mechanical characteristics of materials and do class and laboratory practise to solve typical problems in engineering concerning strength of mechanical components. Theoretical background of mechanism analysis and synthesis is disclosed during studies of „Mechanism and Machines Theory“ while design principles of basic elements included into their structure are covered in the study subject „Machine Elements 1“. Knowledge and understanding in manufacturing technologies of mechanical elements, machinery and tools to be used are developed by studying the course „Technological Machines and Equipment“.
