Engineering studies


State Exam Program: Environment Engineering (EE)
Form of study: full-time
Language of study: Slovak
Standard length of study: 2 years


The graduate has focused on obtaining theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge based on the current state of science in the field of product and environmental quality. The graduate of the "Environmental Engineering" programme of study in the second stage of higher education studies is able to evaluate and assess the quantitative and qualitative properties of the environment and the working environment, and also the characteristics of machines, devices and equipment, including the customer-oriented parameters of these products, through exact methods of simulation, measurement and monitoring. Subsequently, they are able to optimize these parameters, design technical solutions not only in the area of reducing the environmental burden of these products, but also increasing their overall technical quality. In accordance with the theoretical knowledge, practical abilities and skills acquired, they will be prepared for the design and modification of methodologies, including their implementation into technical practice. They can analyse problems in practical activities and propose solutions to them.
The themes of the dissertation, from their selection, formulation, through preparation and evaluation and the level of their management and subsequent defence are a guarantee that the graduate must demonstrate the ability to independently solve the demanding tasks of the second level of the environment programme and has acquired both theoretical and practical knowledge, which they are able to use creatively.


Graduates of the second level of the Environmental Engineering programme in the field of mechanical engineering:
• are able to analyse, optimise and design technical solutions covering a wide area of the quality of the environment and environmental quality of technical equipment,
• are able to carry out research with a high degree of creativity and autonomy,
• have a deep knowledge of environmental engineering enabling them to manage teams of workers in this field, to lead large projects independently and to take responsibility for comprehensive solutions,
• scientific approach to the problems addressed. They have experience in the formulation of hypotheses, experimental design, hypothesis verification and analysis of data obtained
• apply modern methods and design and development techniques in the area of optimization of product and environmental characteristics,
• find and present their own solutions to problems in research, development, design and use of engineering products,
• creatively apply acquired knowledge in practice,
• critically analyse and apply a range of concepts, principles and practices from the field in the context of loosely defined problems, demonstrating effective decision-making in relation to the selection and use of methods, technologies and means,
• can implement comprehensive technical solutions, use modern methods and means in order to solve problems,
• can specify, design, implement and maintain extensive integrated solutions involving engineering production for different types of application,
• can manage the processes of changes of technology from the point of view of technological development, adaptation and implementation of progressive mechanical engineering activities,
• can work on projects that include planning, designing, managing and implementing comprehensive production systems,
• are able to organise and manage projects, integrate people, technologies, equipment and processes, information, materials and energy throughout the lifecycle of the product,
• acquire the habit of seeking continuous further vocational training.


After completing the second level of study of Environmental Engineering in the field of mechanical engineering, graduates can look for employment in various industries, both in the public and private sectors.


Graduates of the programme apply their skills and knowledge in:
• metrology, measurement, consistency of measuring instruments, calibration, verification,
• company development workplaces,
• accreditation, management and operation of testing laboratories,
• development of methodology for highly specialised measurement techniques,
• development of products and optimization of their characteristics in terms of environmental quality,
• manufacture of electronics and household appliances,
• proposing measures to improve the quality of the environment and the working environment,
• environmental protection departments,
• scientific interdisciplinary teams, Slovak Academy of Sciences,
• diagnostic, research and development laboratories,
• and many others.
