The Concentration Areas defy the broad domains of knowledge which our regular activities of teaching and research refer to throughout the Mechanical Engineering Program:
Current Concentration Areas
- Acoustics, Vibrations and Dynamics
- Fluids Mechanics
- Solid Mechanics and Mechanical Integrity of Materials
- Project, Manufacturing·and Robotics
- Thermal Science and Thermal Engineering
Interdisciplinary Area: High Performance Computing
- Computing Simulation in Engineering
When it comes to each Concentration Areas, the classes are about:
When it comes to Course levels, the classes are classified as:
- level of Master;
level of Doctoral
As part of the requirements to be a Master candidate, all students enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering Master Program must present a seminar. See specific regulamentation.
The Master’s Dissertation is the last requirement of the course to be fulfilled by its students in order to obtain the Mechanical Engineering master’s degree.
The Doctoral Thesis is the last requirement of the course to be fulfilled by its students in order to obtain the Mechanical Engineering doctoral degree.
The theme of the final paper (dissertation or thesis) must be decided between the students and their professor-advisor.
Each student is accompanied by an academic advisor, that must be available to help them with any matters related to the course.
PEM/COPPE/UFRJ Master’s Program is a stricto-sensu Graduate Program. Each student is intendent to pursue academic qualification and independence in research activities in one of the offered Concentration Areas.
Requirement: english proficiency.
