Welcome to the website of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering – the oldest faculty at Kazimierz Pulaski University of Technology and Humanities in Radom. In fact it was the only faculty in the Engineering College founded on 13 January 1950. Since then it has played a leading role within the University.
Nowadays, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering comprises five divisions:
- Institute of Applied Mechanics and Energetics,
- Institute of Machine Building,
- Institute of Maintenance of Vehicles and Machines,
- Department of Physics,
- Department of Architecture.
Long tradition, scientific research, and specialized laboratory and research facilities have all contributed to the above structure of the Faculty to be formed. It is well suited to the needs of its teaching process. The main teaching components of Institute of Applied Mechanics and Energetics are courses in fundamental technology, design theory and engineering applications. Institute of Machine Building specializes in courses of technological nature: production technology, mechanical working and assembly, fundamentals of machine building, materials technology and surface engineering. Institute of Maintenance of Vehicles an Machines conducts courses in internal combustion engines, construction of vehicles and their mechanical and electronic parts, theory of motion of automobiles, fuels and lubricants. Students are also tutored in Logistic as well as in the organization and management of production. Researches in the Department of Physics include various fields of theoretical and experimental physics, mainly in the field of solid state physics. A significant part of these studies are based on magnetism and magnetic materials. Experimental studies are conducted in the Laboratory of Magnetic Research. In this way all the main areas in the education of a mechanical engineer, i.e. construction, technology, machine operation and maintenance and management, are covered.
The main headquarters of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is located at 54 ul. Stasieckiego Street in Radom.
It should be pointed that the Institute of Maintenance of Vehicles and Machines
is located separately at 45 Chrobrego Street close to the University campus at Akademicka Street. Currently the students study Mechanics and Machine Building either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Graduates earn either an MSc and engineering degree, depending on the type of course they attend. Forms of education available in 2017/2018:
- Field of study: Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering Mode of study: full-time and part-time; the 1st and 2nd degree study level,
- Field of study: Engineering of renewable energy sources Mode of study: full-time; 1st degree study level,
- Field of study: Logistics Mode of study: full-time; 1st degree study level,
- Field of study: BuildingsMode of study: full-time and part-time; 1st degree study level,
- Field of study: Vehicles and Safety in Road TransportMode of study: full-time and part-time; 1st degree study level,
Moreover the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering offers PhD study and postgraduate studies with specialization in:
- Programming of CNC machines,
- Reconstruction of road accidents and liquidation of collision damages,
- Vehicle technologies and safety in road transport.
A very intensive and wide-ranging scientific research accounts for another big part of the Faculty’s activities. Particular attention will be paid to the unique aspects of vehicle operation, alternative fuels and engine research, materials engineering, machine dynamics, power engineering (including atomic), superconducting systems (cryogenics), road building machinery (motorways), cooling and air conditioning systems.The mission of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, consistent with the mission of the University, is to lead in the development of technical civilization in the area of mechanical engineering, implemented through education based on research, knowledge and technology transfer, as well as regional cooperation, national and international, in compliance with the standards and the level of contemporary knowledge, skills and competences. Faculty of Mechanical Engineering plays a significant role in Polish science and education. It positively contributes to the development of Radom and the region.
