Strojnícka fakulta

Žilinská univerzita v Žiline


The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, when considering the scientific research and pedagogical activities, with distinguished foreign universities, schools and institutions. Scientific research activities are not only developed by the form of contract – by investigation of common bilateral and multilateral scientific and pedagogical projects – but take a non-contract form as well.
The spheres involved in scientific research activities of the faculty correspond to scientific orientation of individual departments, and to their scientific and educational fields.
