Department of Mechanics and Strength of Materials

The courses taught by our department are the basis of general engineering training of specialists for construction industry, subsoil use, aircraft engineering and transport. Highly qualified professors and lecturers work at the department. Students of Bachelor's, Specialist's and Master's degree levels take courses connected with the laws of interaction of elements of mechanical systems, strength calculations of rod and plate structures for static and dynamic effects in linear and nonlinear formulation. and the basics of numerical methods for studying stress-strain state of structures. In the learning process are widely used software systems of engineering analysis. Laboratory classes are held with the use of modern testing equipment. Every year the department organizes student competitions. Master graduates of the department are widely demanded in companies, where information technologies are implemented in design and building constructions. Two postgraduate programs are opened to train academic staff. Let us mention high publication and scientific activity of the teachers at the department, as well as their participation in cultural and sport events at the university.
