Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering, nowadays, is made up of a mosaic of interrelated disciplines that allow the engineer to carry out and execute designs and projects to solve the needs and technical problems of mankind. The disciplines that make up Mechanical Engineering are Kinematics and Machine Dynamics, Machine Design, Dynamic Analysis and Vibrations, Transport and Land Vehicle Engineering, Robotics and Biomechanics. The technological progress of the Sciences and, in short, the progress of humanity is forcing the engineer of our time to specialise in one of the scientific branches mentioned above. Although without any doubt, the Mechanical Engineer is a designer and creator of technical projects, with a vast knowledge in the previous disciplines, with the capacity to abstract the general concepts of the Pure Sciences, to be applied in each of the scientific branches and to interrelate them with each other.
