Profile of the programme Training in mechanical engineering with a focus on computational analysis of systems and processes involving solid or fluid materials. The Portuguese industry has presented in recent years a major evolution through technological upgrading and sophistication in the development of computational tools for products design and manufacturing. This evolution has determined the need for experts with more specialized training in each phase of the industrial sector. Thus, the need arises for higher education of Mechanical Engineers with extensive knowledge of computational tools in the different phases of the design and production process, namely design and programming, computational mechanical design, involving static mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. In addition, it is also intended to train individuals with sufficient qualifications for access to the 2nd study cycle in Mechanical Engineering or related degree.
Key learning outcomes Keep up to date in a professional world with constantly evolving computational tools; Have critical capacity of the capabilities and limitations of computational tools and choose the most appropriate one to solve a given problem;Perform the development, or improve the performance using optimization techniques, of products/systems based on mechanical design with a computational component; Conceive and design, with a strong computational basis,fluid/thermal systems and/or mechanical structures, and concepts of mechanical engineering; Know how to use computational modeling tools for mechanical engineering, general or specific, required by industry andnational/international standards; Be able to interpret results of analytical, computational and experimental methods;Analyze, identify, classify, describe and communicate about a mechanical design
Prepare the students to continue their education on a 2nd Cycle or 3rd Cycle in Mechanical Engineering.
Occupational profiles of graduates The technological evolution follows new patterns of production and design of products and systems. The introduction of a reinforcement in the computational component allows aligning the training in mechanical engineering with the new paradigms of industry 4.0 and digital twins (the latter as a support to design and production)
Graduates in Computational Mechanical Engineering at the University of Beira Interior have excellent career prospects. As a result of the differentiated training in the area of mechanics using computational resources that characterize the course, graduates in Computational Mechanical Engineering can work in different areas with extensive knowledge of computational tools in the different stages of the process of conception, design, production, namely design and programming, computational mechanical design, involving static mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
