Mechanical Engineering Education by J. Paulo Davim

By J. Paulo Davim

Mechanical Engineering is outlined these days as a self-discipline “which contains the applying of ideas of physics, layout, production and upkeep of mechanical systems”. lately, mechanical engineering has additionally fascinated about a few state-of-the-art matters equivalent to nanomechanics and nanotechnology, mechatronics and robotics, computational mechanics, biomechanics, replacement energies, in addition to facets relating to sustainable mechanical engineering.
This ebook covers mechanical engineering better schooling with a specific emphasis on caliber coverage and the development of educational associations, mechatronics schooling and the move of information among college and undefined.

On the other hand, academic support services such as research committees and libraries had also implemented ISO 9001. Authors also pointed out the difficulties in obtaining reliable information regarding the number of ISO 9000 registered educational institutions. To the author’s knowledge, there is no updated data available concerning the diffusion of ISO standards to Greek HEIs. ). The procedures followed for the application of quality principles and practices to an engineering department (Department of Mechanical Engineering/University of Thessaly) in the period 2002–2008 are presented in [STA 10].

Studies in the TEIs last for three-and-a-half to four years. Graduates have access to postgraduate studies, which are offered exclusively by the universities or a Quality Assurance in Greek HEIs 35 collaboration scheme between a TEI and an accredited HEI from EHEA [BIL 04]. The higher educational system is public funded, based on the notion that “Education constitutes a basic mission of the State” (Greek Constitution, Article 16 par. 2). ). Professors, according to the Constitution, are public functionaries while the administrative staff of HEIs are civil employees.

44 Mechanical Engineering Education Contrary to expectations, the introduction of this reform has been received positively by the general public and most importantly by the majority of the students, as is revealed by an overview of Greek media of the period. On the other hand, there was a strong opposition from a number of university rectors and a left-oriented minority of academic staff and students. For the time being, part of the law concerning the rectors’ election has not been implemented.
