Ss. Cyril and Methodius University - Faculty of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering studies started in the autumn of 1959 at the Technical Faculty in Skopje, within which the Department of the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering was created. Due to the increased social demand for mechanical engineers in Republic of Macedonia, in 1965 within the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, a separate Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was established with two divisions: Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

The development of studies in Mechanical Engineering brought about the necessity of establishing a separate Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and it dates from 1977 existing up to date. Within about five decades, the Faculty develops its own characteristics which to a large extent correspond with the visions of its founders, yet also reflecting the experience gained throughout its early stage of development.

The last reform of the Faculty's curriculum that was done in 2004 permitted the incorporation of new trends in the science of Mechanical Engineering. Today, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering offers educational process with incorporated new trends in European Higher Education Area, as an ECTS and postulates of Bologna Declaration. The offered study programs are according the demand of the industry sector for advanced engineering technologies and competitive economic growth of the Macedonian industry sector.
