Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department home page.
The Mechanical Engineering Department is a structuring unit of the School of Engineering at the University of Minho. Its mission is the development of the core scientific areas in Mechanical Engineering through three vectors: teaching at both graduate and post graduate levels; research and development; partnership with the industry.
Its main teaching project is the Mechanical Engineering Integrated MSc. In addition, other projects are of the utmost relevance: Biomedical Engineering and Materials Engineering Integrated MSc’s. All these projects are structured accordingly to the guidelines established by the Bologna Protocol.
The research activities are framed within the research center CT2M, under the structure of the School of Engineering. Furthermore, the Department collaborates actively with CVR - Centre for Wastes Valorization and with TecMinho, coordinating its Chemical Analysis Laboratory. a TecMinho, acolhendo e dirigindo o Laboratório de Análises Químicas desta última instituição.
On behalf of all the staff and collaborators, I invite you to know a little bit of us through this web page.
