It's useful to know

In the Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering you will acquire the necessary skills to design, develop and calculate machines, engines, vehicles, structures and industrial facilities.

At the same time, you will learn the necessary bases of technological scientific knowledge to conduct research and development (R+D+I) in the industrial field, as well as to interpret written reports for other specialist engineers. This multidisciplinary ability will allow you to lead cross-disciplinary working parties and work as a manager in technology companies.

As well as multidisciplinary training in fundamental matters of engineering, the bachelor’s degree aims to prepare professionals to face the challenges of today's society with particular focus on optimising designs and processes, efficiency in the use of material and energy resources, and respect for the environment and improved sustainability.

® Roger Lleixà

Bachelor's thesis

In your final year, you will carry out the Bachelor's Thesis, in which you will demonstrate the knowledge you have acquired through your training.

The Bachelor's Thesis is an engineering project on the subject area of your choice, carried out under the supervision of a professor as your tutor. If you wish, you can complete this in a company or research group. The board of companies that support the Schools and the professional associations of engineers hold an annual award for the best projects from each bachelor's degree programme.

Mobility

The Polytechnic School has international mobility programmes that allow you to undertake stays abroad to study or carry out the final degree project.
