History

University of Novo mesto Faculty of mechanical engineering is an independent higher-education institution in Novo mesto, Slovenia, it was accredited in year 2006.

Study programmes:

-          1st cycle study programme Technologies and Systems,

-          2nd cycle study programme Technologies and Systems in Mechanical Engineering,

-          3rd cycle study programme Sustainable Technologies and Systems in Mechanical Engineering.

The study programme Technologies and Systems is a professional study programme, according to the Bologna process, accredited in december 2006, the fist students were enrolled in study year 2007/2008. The second-cycle study programme Technologies and Systems in Mechanical Engineering is intended for acquiring knowledge on different technologies and associated systems used in industry, including basic knowledge on how to combine the elements of devices and innovative product design with regard to new technologies. The first students were enrolled in study year 2011/2012. We recently obtained accreditation  for the third-cycle study programme Sustainable Technologies and Systems in Mechanical Engineering.

The main objective of the study is to gain high-quality knowledge and use it in practice and/or to build a strong background knowledge in order to continue education at the second-cycle.  All programms have an interdisciplinary character and offers knowledge in the field of technical sciences, with emphasis in education and research work connecting to all types of renewable energy sources, efficient energy use and in numerical simulations or so called virtual prototyping.

Faculty of technologies and systems is located at the center of Novo mesto, in the higher education center in wich are located three more faculty from the field of economics and healh.
