Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics

Wydział Inżynierii Mechanicznej i Robotyki

Subject area: engineering and engineering trades
  • Description:

  • pl
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics became a separate University unit in 1952 as a consequence of the division of the Faculty of Electromechanics; initially, its name was the Faculty of Mechanization of Mining and Metallurgy. The faculty closely collaborates with the extractive and metallurgical industries together with their technical base, and a considerable number of energy and heat energy plants.
Engineering is the creative application of science, mathematical methods, and empirical evidence to the innovation, design, construction, operation and maintenance of structures, machines, materials, devices, systems, processes, and organizations. The discipline of engineering encompasses a broad range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of applied mathematics, applied science, and types of application. See glossary of engineering.

Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering and science that includes mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, computer science, and others. Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.

The number of our students of Engineering, especially of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, is becoming so great that we are somewhat embarrassed to make proper provision for them.
University of Michigan (1871) The President's Report to the Board of Regents for the Academic Year ...: Financial Statement for the Fiscal Year. p. 6
Engineering is too important to wait for science.
Benoît Mandelbrot As quoted in "Fractal Finance" by Greg Phelan in Yale Economic Review (Fall 2005)
There are two laws discrete,
Not reconciled,—
Law for man, and law for thing;
The last builds town and fleet,
But it runs wild,
And doth the man unking.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Ode, Inscribed to William H. Channing
