​Automotive Production Process Control Specialization

Mechanical Engineering BSc Program
Automotive Production Process Control Specialization
The aim of the teaching program includes preparing engineers to improve quality and use lean tools in the vehicle industry, enabling them to gain an understanding of the complete product development (from the supplier to the customer) and lead project teams. In cooperation with local vehicle suppliers students learn about completing cost estimation, utilizing computer softwares to solve manufacturing problems (like Tecnomatix), etc.
Our graduates will develop competence or acquire knowledge in the following areas:

  • introducing and applying modern technologies, computational engineering methods and systems (manufacturing technologies, CAE)
  • operating and developing mechatronical systems (electrotechnics and electronics, measuring and automatics, hydraulics and pneumatics)
  • designing and redesigning plant layouts, checking KPI systems robot technology, automatization, etc
  • planning material handling and manufacturing processes
  • analyzing, controlling and optimizing production processes
  • applying modern manufacturing management philosophies (Lean management) in the vehicle industry
