Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering

Presentation

The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering aims primarily to equip its students to design automated production systems using numerical control machines and robots, to test materials and monitor the quality of products, to organise and manage production and to design and maintain thermal structures and systems.

During the Bachelor's Degree, students can develop their skills in Industrial Engineering in the first years and specialise in Mechanics in the final years. Two specialisations are offered: Integrated Design, dealing with the study, design and calculation of mechanical components and structures, and Industrial Processes, dealing with manufacturing methods, both traditional and advanced, and always respecting environmental criteria.

Students of this degree, taught at the Salesian School of Sarrià, receive personalised tutoring and their studies are complemented by a large number of practical sessions in the laboratories, which are fully equipped both for teaching and for professional purposes. There are also agreements in place for students to be trained at prestigious companies. In the Engineering By Doing version students spend a long period with the company, working on a previously agreed training project, which consolidates their existing competences and equips them with new ones.

As for career options, the number of unemployed graduates in this degree is practically zero, with an average period of three months before finding work.

Student Profile

The ideal student for this degree should have the following qualities: 

  • Interest in mathematics and physics
  • IT knowledge.
  • Calculation skills.
  • Practical, organised and methodical
  • Analysis and synthesis skills.
  • Spatial vision and attention to detail
  • Good manual skills
  • Interest in research,.
  • Good level of English
It is recommended to have a good level in mathematics, physics and chemistry.

Career options

On completing the degree graduates can work in highly important sectors of mechanical engineering such as construction, machinery, metallurgy and the car industry.
Some of the professions open to graduates are:

  • Construction, assembly and maintenance of any industrial installation in the mechanical and thermal area.
  • Design and testing of new products or machine parts using CAD programs.
  • Study using finite elements and CAE programs, simulations and the manufacture of special and prototype pieces.
  • Programming of robots and obtaining numerical control programs using CAM systems.
  • Consultancy, logistics, management, organisation of production, planning, quality, facilities, environmental consultancy services and sales in companies operating in this field.
