Mechanical Systems Engineering

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School
This postgraduate course is also part of the training track for the master's degree Mechatronics and the master's degree Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Equipment.


  • To design optimal mechanical systems for specific industrial equipment.
  • To integrate the notion of environment into machine and equipment design which includes the different areas of businesses that encompass machine production as well as equipment operators.



Mechanical Systems Engineering
12 ECTS. 105 teaching hours.
This course presents the concepts basicair necesarias to define, coordinate and realize the design of industrial machines and care of basic mechanics. Incide up specially for them to guide systems (soporte members are to guide and links to) and for them to accionamiento systems (motor control Transmisiones and Forms). In the determination of the systems MECANICOS You make reference to Criteria for selection of components and use of market standards. Finalmente, Related Technologies They present themselves with the manufacture of prototypes and the realization and assessment of the trials representativos funcionamiento real.
